It's a birthday card at Digistamps4Joy

Good morning all,
Hopefully it is a good one...it is Wednesday, so that has to be good and it is a new challenge at DS4J, so that has to be very good and it is my Birthday month, so that is even better.

This time I have the honour of hosting  challenge # 87 at Digistamps4Joy, and as I said it happens to be my birthday month, so the theme I have chosen is ..Your creation has to have a birthday sentiment.



For my card this week I have used the image..Umbrella bouquet and you can find it  HERE.  I  Coloured it with Distress inkpads and then brushed pearl acrylic paint very lightly over the umbrella. I wanted a satin kind of look and added frosted lace to the edge. Cut it out and mounted with silicone. 
The fancy edge was cut with a Marianne Design die. It is a new one I only got last week and used it to cut the other edge of the card as well.
The sentiment is from one of my blogging friends Hannelie who lives in Dubai.
Finished off with pearls.

We would love you to enter this challenge.all you have to do is make a card for someone with a birthday sentiment.  If you use a DS4J  image, you will have an extra chance in the draw, but you may enter with any image, digital or a rubber stamp.
 
The DT have made some really lovely cards for inspiration, so please pop over and leave them some love.

Have a wonderful week. I hope we will see some sun after 3 days of rain..so unusual for this part of the country. At the moment it is bucketing down and this is the 4th day now. Lucky we are not low down so not much chance of flooding, but I think some parts near here will be having problems with road closures.
 
Take care and see you soon. Thanks for visiting..lovely to have you pop in.
Love Ursula
