Crafty Cardmakers DT Card -#42 Special Birthday

Our challenge this week at Crafty Cardmakers is to create a card for a Special Birthday. We are sponsored once again by the fab Joanna Sheen and there is a £10 voucher on offer for the winner :)

For my "Special Birthday" card I have made a 30th Birthday card for my best friend. For the image I have used a Sweet Pea stamp (not sure what it's called) coloured with ProMarkers and then I have inked the background with a sponge and some ink from a "Big n Juicy" ink pad.I have also added stickles to the water. The papers are from the Henbury Lane collection, flowers are from Wild Rose Studio Orchid Crafts (oops)and little butterfly is from my stash.The border is made with an X-Cut punch. Finally the sentiment is just printed from my pc.
