Yellow Birthdaycard

Wonderful Friday morning - no work today, grey, windy weather, the house is in a real mess - and do you know what; I don't care! Today I'll stay in my work room, cutting, glueing, colouring, glittering, listening to a book - doing all the things I really love! 
Maybe I'll go to the shop to get some food in the house, and maybe - just maybe - I'll put some clothes to wash. There won't be any homework to check when the kids get home from school, there's no work tomorrow, so I can stay up untill real late - I LOVE FRIDAYS! Don't you?

First of all I'll post the birthdaycard I've been working on the last days.
I'm not really a user of brightcoloured papers or bold colours, but I think I've managed it quite well with this one - It's a little bit of both bright and bold, don't you think???
I used lots of different dies and punches, ribbons, liquid Pearls, a sunflowercharm - and distressInk (WalnutStain) on ALL edges. The greeting is from Kort&Godt, and fits perfect onto the tag from the  Spellbinder Fancy Tag set.

Inside the card I used a paper from Primas Sun Kiss Collection as background. Around the panels I used a Martha Stewart PATP-set. The butterflies are also Martha Stewart-punches.
The birthdaygreeting is from North Star Stamps.

Here's a close-up of the two Tildas laying in the flowers. I had big doubts buying the papers from Primas Sun Kiss Collection, but I found them so summery and "happycoloured"  with the big sunflowers and lovely butterflies that I couldn't resist them...
Colouring the Tildas clothes, I think I used ALL yellowcoloured ProMarkers.

Here's a list of the challenges I'll send my card to:
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Hip 2B Square
OLLCB - Ribbon or Twine
Kort o Mania - Bingo (Punch/ Bling/ Osteklut)
Crazy 4 Challenges - Birthday Card
Paper Pretties - Bold Bright Colours
Crafts and Me - Fabulous Flowers
Delightful Challenges - 5 or more Flowers
Joanna Sheen - Happy Birthday

Just a quick post today - now I'll head back to my workdesk.
Have a nice day everyone, thanks a lot for stopping by. 
Your comments make me even happier than crafting does ---or should it be "do" ???

  5. Et utrolig nydelig kort du har lagd, lekre farger og så flott pyntet! Dessverre har vi en grense på fem kombinerte utfordringer hos Kort'o'Mania, så det blir ikke med denne gangen - håper du blir med oss en i annen utfordring:)
    Klem fra Kjersti:)

  6. Vilket välgjort kort du har gjort! Tyvärr tillåter vi bara att man kombinerar 5utmaningar hos KOrt o Mania. Välkommen tillbaka snart gör vi om reglerna.

  7. Yet another thing to mention is that an online business administration program is designed for college students to be able to easily proceed to bachelor's degree education. The 90 credit diploma meets the lower bachelor diploma requirements so when you earn your own associate of arts in BA online, you'll have access to the most recent technologies within this field. Some reasons why students would like to get their associate degree in business is because they're interested in this area and want to obtain the general training necessary prior to jumping right into a bachelor diploma program. Thanks for the tips you really provide inside your blog.
