The Birthday Fairy

*waves* I can't believe I didn't share this card with you guys waaay back at the beginning of November. I am terrible, I know!!

I made this card for a girl who is a lover of many things. Many things of which I tried to squeeze onto the card without it looking ridiculous.

Fairies, stars, toadstools, butterflies and flowers! Naturally, like most 11 year old girls she's a huge lover of pink, so I went really pink with some hot pink ribbon and flowers. Hopefully by age 24 she'll have grown out of it slightly! ;) It's not one of my favourite, in case you guys didn't already know.

I used the adorable Charlotte from Funky Kits. Grab her while you can as she's retiring soon. I also used some toadstool stamps from Some Odd Girl which I always have a blast colouring up as well as a Martha Stewart butterfly punch.

I used my Cameo to create her name and age before stamping a Paper Smooches banner with Lawn Fawn alpha stamps to create happy birthday and added it all the card.

As finishing touches I chose some flat and 3D paper flowers, some glittery buttons and a whole load of liquid pearls and sequins. Job. Done. xx
