5 Today!

During the week, my goddaughter turned 5! Goodness, can't believe she is that old already. How time flies when you are busy!!

I made this card for her birthday, and amazingly posted it on time! (woohoo, I'm slowly getting organised ;-)  )

I used a cream card folded to A5 (148.5mm x 210mm). I cut a pink sheet about 20mm shorter both sides, and embossed with my happy birthday folder.

I cut out '5' from beautiful glittery foam, and stuck it onto some glittery paper. (The photos don't allow for the glitter to show :( !!  )
 I used two dies to cut out the cerise pink border around the '5'. I had no letters or stamps small enough, so I wrote with a silver pen 'today', and of course couldn't resist two hearts!

I've been trying to find a die for bunting, but been having no joy lately! So I made my own, from washi tape. I have done this a few times before, and with my lovely collection of polka dotted washi tape, they work well together.  I attached the washi tape to some wire and put two brads into the card to thread the wire to. I have some Kaisercraft Mini Alpha Stickers, which I used to create 'happy' for the bunting.
I used an outline 'birthday' sticker for the finish.

I love the jovial, party feel the card gives. Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great day :)

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

My Creative Moments - Wordplay Birthday  (8/8/13)

Why not try a challenge or two?
Eithne :)
