Happy birthday

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog..i would just like to say hello to my latest follower kellie...I had not realised its been a couple of weeks since I last time flies..I have been so busy making my granddaughters wedding stationery but it's all done now, but as much as I have loved doing it I don't think I would do it again...

i am back in Portugal for the next couple of months but I could really kick myself I had stamped a load of images to fetch with me, how disappointed I was when I discovered I had not packed them...but I had a few stamped images here to put me on, and my best friend is going to send me some....
I love lilyofthevalley stamps and this is one I stamped a while ago, 
I used spectrum noir to colour
Oval shapes are from Tonic dies
The border die was given to me by a friend
Happy birthday sentiment is from craftwork cards
Backing paper came free with a craft magazine
Ribbon and the little bird sticker came from my craft box
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges
