4th Birthday

It's my local craft shop's 4th Birthday this week - the very fabulous Craft Den - and today they are celebrating with a demo day- Lynne the owner is demonstrating the Grand Calibur (on sale at a very special birthday price, better than any I can find on the internet if you fancy one) and she has Kay from Indigo Blu stamps doing lots of lovely demonstrations until about 4pm today.

Naturally a card was required and as I just picked up the spellbinders labels from the Den a couple of weeks ago, I thought I'd use them and the tropical leaf cheery lyn dies as the basis for the card.

I used my favourite of the new Waltzingmouse release stamps which co-ordinate with the label die and the matching border to create the background for the large 8x8 card.  The colours were from last weeks Colour Throwdown but I wasn't quick enough getting it done to join the challenge.  The sentiment is from Imagine That.  I made the felt flower by cutting out 3 flowers using a marianne flower die and folding them into 3rds and sticking together for dimension.  The 4 is a chipboard letter covered in the same felt as the flower.

I am entering this into this weeks Annabelle stamps challenge which is to create your own background with stamps and not to use DP.
