Birthday card

I love to have a stash of birthday cards built up. It helps for those last minute birthday celebrations.  I also try to make them neutral enough that they can be used for male or female cards.

This A2 card's main image is from New Arrival.  I assume they're supposed to be baby shower presents, but presents are presents!  Can you see the little bling on each bow?  I thought it added a nice touch.  I hand cut the Happy Birthday banner that was stamped with Joy's Life stamps.  That got some bling too.  

The final touch was the paper that was punched with the Threading Water Fiskars border punch.  

I will be entering this into the following challenge:
DL Art- Birthday with a present, circles, and bling
Celebrate the Occasion- Birthday card
Pin It
