Gingerloft Challenge, Happy Birthday!

Its time for another challenge at Gingerloft  and this fortnight the theme is Happy Birthday!  I decided on a shabby chic style for my DT make

The main image is the gorgeous Butterfly collage digi from Gingerloft which you can buy here I coloured my image using Distress Markers, I printed two copies and layered the letter on top just for a bit of dimension. I added a bit of glitter to the butterflies.  I matted my.image onto a bit of gold card that I embossed with a music score (I think the embossing folder was Dienamics) I coloured the ripped edges with Distress Markers and tied an American Crafts velvet ribbon round it.

My backing paper is Prima and I finished off with some pearls, twine and charm from my ever expanding stash.

Finally my Happy Birthday from Anna Griffin.

May is certainly the time for birthdays in my family I have my mum and brother one day after eachother then my OHs dad and sister all within a few days so this challenge is very fitting for me!

I hope you can join in our challenge and enter your birthday cards here You can win 3 digis of your choice and believe me there  are millions to choose from, Tami who designs them is an amazing artist and is always adding more.
