Card for Sophie

This card was made for my crafty mate, Debbie's daughter, Sophie. She turns fifteen today! Happy birthday, Sophie! :o)

I have also submitted it to Sassy Crafts for my DT card for this week, as it uses Basic Grey 'Cupcake' paper, which is available on the Sassy Crafts web-site, HERE.


I thought I had a stamp with birthday candles on, but couldn't find it, so drew my own and covered them with Glossy Accents.

  8. Hi Chris

    Sophie has asked me to say thank-you very much for the lovely Birthday card. She was so surprised, and thought it was very kind of you.

    We went to Alton Towers for her birthday treat, and a good time was had by all.

    Back to school today for her. thanks again Chris you made her day.

    I love the card too by the way. I even thought the candles were from a sticker, they are so professional.

    Love Debbie xx
