A Little Birdie Told Me It Was Your Birthday...

Happy New Year!  Time for the first challenge of the year from The Perfect Sentiment!  I don't know about you but I come from a big family so there isn't a month in the year that I don't have at least a couple of birthday cards to send out.  This week's challenge over at The Perfect Sentiment is helping me get a head start on the year!

The Challenge:  
Create a card with a birthday sentiment (sentiment must be on the front of the card).

The Twist: 
Use some type of metal embellishment on your card:  eylets, brads, spiral clips, etc...

Our wonderful sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish!  They are graciously giving our randomly drawn winner 5 digi stamps of their choice from the Robyn's Fetish shop!  Check them out :)

For my card this week I used this cute digi stamp from Robyn's Fetish called "A Little Birdie Told Me" - perfect for a birthday card, or a spring hello!

and the inside...

  1. What a wonderful creation! The dsp behind the image really brings this together. I love that you finish the inside of your cards as well, it's that little extra that makes it extra special!

  2. I love your card. Totally caught my eye. I love love how you did the flowers with the eyelet in the middle. And like the verse you used inside...perfect for a birthday card! And the card looks professionally done that you could take a picture and send it to Hallmark for them to make cards out of it!

  3. What a pretty card! I just love that image and I love how you used the eyelets in the middle of the flowers, it is just the perfect detail!
