Happy Birthday at Creative Inspirations

Good mornng lovelies - well how are you today? I had such a lovely day yesterday - a fabulous run in Morecambe and then after lunch I took my mum and dad to the scarecrow festival at the village next to mine - the theme this year is read me - so there were alsorts of scarecrows there depicting books - as you know me and my rainbows had done rapunzel - a popular theme as there were two others, then there was jack and the beanstalk, humpty dumpty, the lion the witch and the wardrobe, the fellowship of the ring, and of course a few fifty shades of grey to mention just a few! It was such a lovely day and great to see everything in the sunshine!

At creative inspirations this week's challenge is Birthdays!
Make a Birthday Creation to celebrate our 5th Birthday!

This week's prize is from THE PAPER SHELTER which is a $20 GIFT CERTIFICATE!

Here's what I did:

The image is one supplied by the sponsor - she's so pretty - I teamed her up with the latest paper stack free from CMPC and coloured her in using promarkers. I've cut her out using 2 parts of the adorning squares from spellbinders and added one of the dielite spellbinder dies at the bottom over the lace.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
AGOACpinkgemchallengeblog: Green
