Happy Birthday Special Friend with Fabulous Fashion by Katysuedesigns.

Hi bloggers,

Well what a wet Sunday and it's freezing. I think we've all been so spoilt with the beautiful warm weather, we may have become soft. Well I think I have. I had a weak moment and put the heating on, it's lovely and cosy now.

Not been blogging much, the weather has been too nice to sit indoors, so I'll have to make up for my tardiness. Got lots of cards to show you, so I thought I'd start with my latest one. This one is a birthday card for a special friend. I hadn't used my new 'Fabulous Fashion' cd, so I though I'd give it an outing.

There are so many beautiful designs to choose from, I could hardly decide. The artwork is so unusual and pretty. The card is for a very feminine lady, so I thought this one was ideal. The decoupage designs are click and print on the cd and this one has a matching hat, which I think is great. There are handbags to match as well, a very girly cd.

I used a large 8x8 scalloped card to make an easel, I seem to have been making lots of rocker cards lately, so thought an easel would be a change. Also, the topper definitely suited an easel card. The spotty backing paper was from the forever friends 'Black & Gold' cd.

I added a tag with a little witty verse and attached it with a butterfly brad, then to finish a few flowers and some card candy.

On the back I added another verse, with somewhere to write and then made a box, using the same spotty design.  

Hope you like it. If you've not seen these designs before, check out the cd on youtube. Noreen does some great demo's on there.
