Happy Birthday Sheila !!

Today its is Sheila's birthday over at She's A Sassy Lady.  A big Happy Birthday hug coming your way.

I hope you are having a fabulous day Sheila and that you are being spoilt rotten:-)

This is the card I made a couple of weeks ago; after all I had to get it in the mail, to make sure that it got there in time for Sheila's birthday.


I used a lovely new textured cardstock stack by DCWV.  Its called The Far East Stack and its awesome.  My husband spotted it whilst we were on a recent road trip to America and I fell in love with it.

The fan was from the Pagoda cartridge, (page 64, fan 1) and cut at 2".  I inked the edges and sprayed it with some home made glimmer mist.

The sentiment is from a CTMH stamp set that came with the Art Philosophy cartridge.

Here is a side view.


Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you will stop by Sheila's blog and wish her a Happy Birthday.

This card is being entered in the following challenges.

    1. Hi P, Thanks. I had completely forgotten that I had scheduled this post LOL. I hope Sheila got it in the post in time for today, I posted it 2 weeks ago. Here we have torrential rain and thunderstorms all day - so I'm going to spend it doing laundry and crafting in between loads:-)
