90th Birthday Card

I was very lucky recently and won a voucher for Crafty Devils from the Allsorts challenge, so I thought I'd buy a 'grown up' stamp for a change instead of my usual cutesy style.  This lovely flower is from the Papermania Botanicals range - Wild Rose.  And I also treated myself to this pretty Creative Expressions bow die - it would have needed a few more passes through my cuttlebug (plus my plates are a bit warped) - the central bow should have a fancy cut out pattern but I didn't have enough of this scrap DP left to try again!

My flowers are popped up on dimensionals and another layer on the butterfly part of the image as I'd originally coloured it blue and then decided it should be pink :)  My sparkly peel offs were originally silver, but I gave them a bit of a colour with a pink copic.

Layout from Papertake Weekly - sketchie free for all so I chose #26
Crafty Catz - Happy Birthday to Crafty Catz
Sister Act #76 - anything goes
Simon Says Stamp Monday - finishing touches (my butterflies)
Die Cuttin Divas #185 - anything goes
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge #197 - at least 3 patterned DPs
Sparkles monthly challenge #60 - things with wings
