What a surprise!

You may have seen Heidi's comment on my blog last night about me being in DoCrafts Creativity magazine. That was a surprise to me, and what a great one! I hadn't seen the magazine yet and I didn't know my card was going in there. I was out early this morning to find a copy. Lucky my local craft shop had them. I'm in the reader gallery on page 72-73.

This is my card from the magazine.

To start making this card I cut the two curve panels for the dark blue card using a WSDesigns template. I cut the centre spotty patterned paper using the template. The spotty paper, bird and butterflies are from DoCrafts Henbury Lane range.

I added the bird with foam pads. To the centre of the flowers I added small gems, also by DoCrafts. I also attached the butterflies onto the front and back panel of the card.

I attached the birthday greeting to the front of the card and again I added a gem. To finish the card I attached a strip of pink ribbon around the card and a bow tied from the same ribbon.
