This 40th Birthday Card winged it's way to Switzerland! It was for the Sister of our very good friend "Karin"

This is a gatefold card from Kanban. The top backing paper is from the Henbury Lane collection & the gingham paper is from Back to Basics by Dovecraft. The image is a Molly Bloom stamp (my favourite stamps by the way!) I cut the arched shape with one of the new Sizzix nesties. I used a Marianne die for pink spotted ribbon & attached a heart shaped charm which says "I love ballet"! The happy birthday is one of Anita's Glitterations & I mounted it on to pink pearl card & cut it with a die from Fancy Tags Two. I also used Labels Six for the cream pearl card.

Inside I used the Grand Nestie Labels Four. The happy birthday peel off is from Card Creations. I added some balloons & stars domed stickers from Papermania. I finished the inside by mounting a ballet dress & shoes on to pink glittered card cut with a scalloped circle die from Little Claire.

A card for my Sister-in-Law "Chris"

The background paper & topper were free from the Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine issue 94. Their called Soft Nostalgia by Hot Off The Press. I added a few rhinestones to finish.

A 21st Card for our Nephew - Michael

The background paper & topper is from Kanban. The cup is a die cut out of red mirri card & I've added a key charm to represent it being Michael's 21st birthday.
