Another birthday card.

Happy Friday to all my blogging friends. I can't believe it has been so long with no card from me. Life is a bit hectic and time is flying. Just making a few birthday cards and some swaps that I have committed to, and popping into a couple of blogs here and there. Just another week and I will have some time to craft. Even Christmas cards are just not happening. Anyway, here is a card I made for a special little girl. Our youngest grandaughter in NZ is turning 2 tomorrow (Saturday) and this is the card I made for Gabriella.
I hope I can remember what I did, as in my rush to post it I didn't make notes.
Paper: Ccut and folded a gatefold card with white cardstock and matted pink card onto that. I first ran this through the cuttlebug with the numbers folder, where I foiled the number 2 as she turnes 2.
Image: Stamped the WOJ Henry with cupcake onto watercolour paper and coloured it with a combination of pencilsa and distress inkpads. Put some glitter on the cupcake icing. Cut it with a Nellie Snellen MF die and inked the edges.
Sentiment was computer generated and put on with 2 butterfly brads.
I also decoreated the inside. Again used a NS die cutting out the computer generated message and again matted it onto pink. Punched out various flowers and assembled them with a pearl in the centre.
Family birthdays are almost over for the year, but need to get seriously stuck into Christmas cards.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. We had some lovely rain with cool weather, now back to summer. Hope to be back soon

This is a beautiful card, Ursula. Lovely colouring and such a cute image. Thanks for visiting my blog, it is always good to meet new card friends especially from South Africa.
Have a wonderful week,
