A Birthday card

Good morning all. A lovely sunny morning here.... hope it stays that way..... had NO rain yesterday....
I have a number of birthday card to make for family and friends this month.... so here is one of them......not telling who it is for.
I am also entering this one into 2 challenges, both digital and both requiring buttons.
Digital Challenges - anything goes
Digistamps4joy - Buttons

Here is what I did:

Paper - white cardstock, matted DP printed from Funky Hand CD, Bazzil cut with a Nellie Snellen die.

Image - Freebie from Digistamps4joy, printed onto watercolour paper and coloured with distress inkpads

Embellishments. Ribbon from stash, also buttons and flowers. For the sentiment I printed happy birthday and cut out a button with Crealies die. covered it with glossy accents to add to the buttons. Finished off with lots of bling round the frame, as this young lady loves BLING.

Inside - repeated the paper, ribbon and bling, added a Nestie cutout for the message.

I hope she will love it, let me know what you think.
Have a super day, keep warm if it is cold and snowy where you are.

I like the colours and a cute image too. Have you always stayed in Roodepoort or did you move there lately. If I had known you were so 'close' we could havew had a play date long ago!
