Papertrey Ink Birthday card

Hello everyone,

Sorry I haven't updated for a while but things have been a little hectic and my husband and I also spent a few days away exploring Edinburgh for the first time. It really is a fascinating city and I was particularly struck by how the old and new live side by side with the new Scottish Parliament building being opposite the Palace of Holyrood. We walked until we were exhausted but with all the hills and steps, I think we came back a lot fitter. Its my birthday tomorrow but before I go into a decline at the thought of my advancing years, I thought I'd share a card I made that is for the current challenge at Passion for Papertrey. The challenge was to choose a card from one of the Papertrey Design Team and take some inspiration from it. I chose to case a card from Heather Nichols which was created for the Stamp a faire event. The challenge was to create a card with an aperture but I didn't have time to post it then and the card has been sitting on my desk so here is my offering:-

Stamps used were Big Birthday Wishes, Signature Greetings and Little Bitty Bird. I also used the little bird die, some Ripe Avocado dotty ribbon, button twine and a green button.

Thanks for looking,
