Hello again crafters!

I have been trying to make a birthday card for my mother-in-law's birthday which is today.  I took so long over it though that my husband went out and bought her a card so this will go to someone else instead later in the year!
I had an image in my head of how I wanted this to look and it's not quite turned out how I pictured it. I think I should have made the squares with the papers on a bit bigger or more rectangular.  I am still quite new at all this so I am learning all the time!

This is another Hobbycraft mini kit of a cupcake. I used some pink foil card to frame my layers.  The papers are all from my Create and Craft paper book.  I added some paper flowers with gems, the sentiment is also from the Create and Craft paper book.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Thanks for visiting my blog, please leave me a comment to let me know what you think and come back soon!


  1. I think it's perfect as it is Claire. You should save it for her next birthday!

  2. This is so pretty. I love the papers and your cross stitch work. Doesn't it take a long time! A lovely card, I too think you should save it for her next birthday. Thank you for sharing this with us over at Crafting from the Heart. Sue DT. x

  3. I don't know that I could give a card away after cross-stitching something to put on it. I've cross-stitched before and that's a lot of work! But what a nice gift! Thanks for sharing and joining us at Inspiration Destination. Hope to see you again and good luck!
