Today it was Sarah's birthday so I dashed home and got crafting....she made me such a beautiful card for my birthday I wanted to return the favour.  I am taking a break from showing you my demo items to show you her card.
Now in true crafting form I wondered if there was a challenge anywhere that I could incorporate, kill two birds with one stone, so to speak, hope you don't mind Sarah.  :)
Over on the Sugarbowl challenge blog  they've set a challenge to join the Sugar Bowl so I thought I'd have a go.  There is a sketch to follow and a few requirements so why not have a go?
I have used K & Company papers from Classic K Bailey and brown craft together with Spellbinder Nestabilities label 1 and 8 and Martha Stewart doily lace.  I found some matching flowers by Prima, lace, wire, ribbon and cotton from stash.  I have edged with chalk inks brown and creamy beige and black ink.  The "Best Wishes" stamp is by Funstamps and the little tag and stamp from Stamping up.  The Sugar Nellie stamp is Gorjuss sitting and is coloured using copics pens.  Finally I have used my winnings from Epiphany Crafts to make 3 matching buttons.....oh I so loved playing with that new toy!! x
So before I go it's a final HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Sarah hope you've had a cracking day...and happy crafting to you all.
