Fabulous Birthday

Hey all, hope you are keeping well. The weather here today is very wet and windy, just the way I like it (when I can stop in the house and do not have to go anywhere..) it can only mean one thing.. winter is definately on the way! :)

Anyway, one of my aunties has a birthday soon, so I thought I might make a birthday card which is more her style, as I have a fair few on hand, but not sure any of them suit her..

So here it is. I decided to keep it quite plain and straight forward, with a simple sentiment stamp portraying the message. Even though we are heading into winter over here in England, my aunty lives in Spain, hence the use of quite bright colours. This is another reason why I tried to keep the card quite flat, and hopefully the chipboard will hold steady the paper flower that lies on top. Hopefully it won't get too damaged in the post..
