Birthday Wishes

Good afternoon all!

I hope I find you well and happy. Not too soggy in this terrible rainy weather? For a couple of days I really thought summer had turned up, just goes to show.
I`ve been in a really strange mood this week, sort of...blah! Not sure if it`s post holiday blues or what but it`s playing havoc with my mojo. I keep getting the urge to make a card but then can`t come up with an original idea at all.So I`ve Cased one.
I`ve been stalking following Debbie from Lime Doodle for a while now, she really is the Queen of CaS and has some fabulous designs. My card is made using This card as inspiration.

 I`ve changed the EF and the colour of the panel. I used a flower instead of a bow but the overall design is the same.
My flower is made using lots of layers of black tissue paper, cut out with a nestie scalloped circle, scrunched up and then prized(?) apart again, all held together with a gorgeous pink sparkly brad.
I`ve added a piece of thin ribbon in black too.
The sentiment is a mix of Layers of Color (birthday) and Waltzing Mouse (wishes).

A close up of the sparkly brad. Not the best piccy I`m afraid.
After I`d made this card I realised I could enter it into this weeks Dynamic Duo`s #7 which is Melon Mambo, black and an option of ribbon.

I`m going to have to hurry though as the challenge closes soon.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
