Brenda's Birthday Card

Here is the card I have made for Brenda, my stepmother, its her birthday today, Happy Birthday Brenda!

I started with a 7 x 5 scalloped card and cut and scored it to make a side step card.

I love tatty teddy and have bought some of the new craft bits out, the image is a stamp from Docrafts which I have coloured in with Promarkers. I have used Aqua and pink to colour in the flower pots, Aqua for Tattys nose and cool grey 1 on the Tatty Teddy's patches.

The paper is from The tatty teddy decoupage pack and the pink card from my craft stash. I have added a white dotty ribbon and bow from Woodware and used my Cuttlebug Olivia dies to cut out the name Brenda and I've used silver peel offs for the sentiment.

I have added a butterfly cut with an X-cut punch and added some glossy accents with glitter on in the centre. I have also added 3 silver gems at the bottom of the image.
