Happy Birthday Vicky from Crackerbox Palace!

This week is the birthday of a special lady, Vicky of Crackerbox Palace:) I created this card for her and sent it and am sharing it today here on my blog. As you know if you follow my blog, I love Crackerbox Palace stamps for many reasons - their high quality rubber, their humor and the variety. This pretty lady is part of a collection of unique stamps I just adore. I created a background with sponging and a stencil on a white piece cut out with a Spellbinders die. I stamped, paper pieced and colored her before attaching the piece in a hole created with the same Spellbinders die in a green piece. Then I added some green leafy flourishes from Marianne Designs.
I have been having fun with floating images on the inside of my cards and in this case, flowers and a Happy Birthday sentiment from Crackerbox Palace pop up when the card is opened by the birthday girl. Here is a picture of the whole inside:
The sentiment is perfect for Vicky- "Wishing a very special person a wonderful day filled with love and happiness" -  tomorrow and always!

I am entering this card in the "Let's Hear it for the Girls" challenge at The Squirrel and The Fox  and the Anything Goes challenge at Treasure Times Rubber Stamps.
