Birthday Card for Meg and Anyone for Anya and The Crafty Pad Challenges

Hi All
I thought i would start my new year resolution already by making my Brother's girlfriend Meg a birthday card for her. For months I've been terrible of leaving it to the last minute so I've learnt from the mistake now and give it a go being an eager beaver LOL. Fortunately I've also coincided her card with Anyone for Anya Sketch #5 and The Crafty Pad Challenge 51
I've used:
  • Making Memories Vintage Hop and DCWV Retro Papers

  • Papermania Scalloped Textured Cardstock

  • Sizzix Dots Embossing Folder

  • Quickutz Metro Alphabet Dies

  • Sizzix Hello Kitty Nested Flower Die

  • Faux Stitch Ribbon
  • HOTP Flower and Buttons

  • The Greeting Farm Stamp - Signature Set
Hope you all have a Happy New Year!!

  7. Hi Sal
    Thanks for the lovely comment you left on my blog. What a beautiful card this is. The fresh colours are a lovely antidote to all those Christmassy reds and greens. I dream about being organised so I'm really quite jealous. Happy New Year. Lauren x
