A Birthday card for Ros

I made this side step card for a dear friend of mine who has turned 40. Although she didn't want to be reminded of it i just had to use the big 40 on the card. I am really happy with the way it turned out and it reminded her of herself when she was little.

I cut the numbers on  my cricut and embossed them with a cuttlebug folder that I also sanded back to reveal the core. I used copic markers to colour in the image.

Here is the recipe:

Stamp used: Gorjuss girls
Sentiment: Bizzy becs digi freebies
Papers & Leaf ribbon: From my stash
Punch: Martha Stewart
Butterfly & flowers: Hookedoncraft

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Polly craft challenge - Challenge #80 special birthdays
One stitch at a time - Make it pretty
Craft your passion challenges - Challenge #45 use Pink

Please feel free to leave a comment as I would love to hear what you think
