Funky Hand Monthly Challenge

The folks at Funky Hand are looking for something with a birthday theme this month which figures because a Happy Happy Birthday CD has recently been launched.  I used papers from the Sunshine Birthday collection to make this card, simply adding a Top Note die cut from Sizzix, a scaled down piece of the backing paper cut using a Nestability die, a stamped and punched greeting (Stampin Up) and some flowers using a Marianne die and an X-cut punch.  Just for luck I added a butterfly using a Sizzix embosslits folder (also SU). A bright and cheery result.


  1. WHat a lovely cheerful card Val to cheer us all up on a very dark and damp morning.
    Love your vibrant colours and you have promted me to get out my Top Note and us it..


  2. A bright cheery card Val. It's a shame the weather does not match the card this morning, still there is a promise of better things to come later in the week.
