Just Cute Bears #40 - Winter Birthday

Sunday, 21 November 2010
Good morning, I hope you're having a lovely weekend so far.  I would like to start off by offering an apology to everyone for not having visited your creations for the last challenge, or anyone's blogs for the past few weeks.  I don't want to go into detail, but I've been having a tough time emotionally and personally just recently and have been struggling.  I'm doing my best to turn it round and hope to have more creations to show really soon and be back in blogland.

This weeks challenge at Just Cute Bears and Friends is to create something for a wintery birthday. 

I have used some of my gorgeous Forever Friends decoupage that in theory is for Christmas but is perfect for birthday's and have jazzed it up a bit with some Silver Spray & Sparkle.  The CS is Cherry Cobbler from SU! which I got from the lovely Jules.  The papers are part of the decoupage set and the punched element is from a Martha Stewart PATP set.  I finished off with some card candy in opposing corners and a CWC oval sentiment.

Don't you just think that is beautiful bunch of flowers?!  I've added close up so you can see a bit of the sparkle.
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday - Sketch
Stampin for the Weekend - Winter

Please check out all the girls amazing creations.  I hope that you will join us for this challenge as I do love seeing everyone's interpretations and creations.

Thank you for stopping by and for any comments you may leave as they are greatly appreciated.
