Happy Birthday at Crafty Ann's

Well weekend is nearly here, I do love these short weeks at work don't you? Its time for a new challenge from Crafty Ann's Challenge blog and this time we have a nice easy one for you... 'Happy Birthday', as always our lucky winner will receive a fab prize from Crafty Ann's Digi Store!

For my DT card this time I've used this superfun image called 'Fit as a fiddle' and a gorgeous tartan bp from Crafty Ann's. I fell in love with this image as soon as I saw it, its so quirky and it comes with 3 fun sentiments too, they are perfect with the image and I've used "Kick up your heels... its your birthday' for my card.

The image is coloured with promarkers and cut out with nestie labels 4. I've used some green card from my stash for matting and layering, some brass buttons and also some gorgeous tartan ribbon from Crafty Ribbons. I've added a homemade bottlecap embellie as the card looked a bit plain. I've crushed the bottlecap with my cuttlebug and coloured the inside with alcohol inks and added microbeads and  crackle accents. The edge of the bottlecap is coloured with a gold krylon pen.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts: One for the boys
Craft your days away: Music and dance
Crazy Challenge: one for the boys
Digistamps 4 Joy: Its a celebration
