13th Birthday Card


I have finally been asked to make some cards. I have been building up my stash of handmade cards so much I have been waiting to be asked to make particular ones for somebody.

I have matt and layered my card with red glitter card then black and white spotty card. I added satin ribbon across my card. I mounted the image from a Hunkydory book onto black card and then added it to my card with foam pads. I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a Go Kreate die from a nesting set and mounted it onto a red scalloped oval cut with the next size up in the set. I die cut the numbers using Marianne dies and added them to the shape cut with a die from a nesting set from The Works and then attached them to my card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
