A Girly Birthday Card


 Hello everyone. This week I would like to show you a girly birthday card I made for my friend, Abigail who turned thirteen on Saturday. She had a beautiful ‘Butterfly Tea Party’. All the young ladies had to wear hats and gloves! We had a lovely time and I would like to share more of our lovely afternoon with you in another post!

So here is my card...I hope you like it!

I made this a card a few weeks ago, but never posted it on my blog...Abigail admired it and I knew she liked it very much so I decided to give it to her with her birthday present; a handmade diary.


I love this stamp!  The colouring was slightly difficult, but I enjoyed it very much!

I put a pearl in the centres of the three flowers to match the pearls on the ribbon.

I am sure you must know by now that I have a ‘thing’ for spotty ribbon...I love it and use it on almost all my cards because they seem lost without it!

I got this little butterfly in a prize on I won at Heidi’s Crafts... I think it adds the finishing touch to my card!
