Sending Birthday Wishes

Hello everyone

I've done a decoupage this time so I can enter it for a challenge which Suzanne has been chosen to be a DT member for. It's a new challenge blog and it's their first week - 3D Cards Challenge. I haven't done a decoupage for ages - the theme is "Pets" and do you think I could find a decoupage with a pet on it anywhere? I had one with a polar bear on it which I was going to make into a Christmas card but Suzanne thought Christmas in May was going a bit far! I've bowed to pressure and done this one instead. It has a wee girl with some wee animals on it so I do hope it counts as pets. I haven't done a decoupage for ages; it took me quite a long time but I like it now it's finished. I really like blue and yellow, bright and breezy as a summer's day. I think it would be a lovely card for someone who's feeling a bit down, it would really cheer them up. You could just change the sentiment.

This is my receipe:
Tina Wenke Decoupage Sheet
DPs: DCWV - A Pocketful of Posies
Cardstock: scraps from stash
Flowers: Prima and Hero Arts -coloured with Promarkers
Pearls, brads, charm, jump rings and ribbon from stash
Tools: Cuttlebug, Big Scalloped Circles; Plain Circles; Ribbon Tags Trio;
Fiskars Border Punch
EK Success Swirl Punch
Sentiment: Hampden Arts

I can enter this card for the following challenges:
3D Cards Challenge Blog which is Pets (hope my little animals count ok)
One Stop Craft Challenge Blog which is Summer Breeze
Allsorts is Birthdays and they are doing a Birthday Bloghop - Happy Birthday to you!
Crafty Catz want Petals and Pearls
Secret Crafter is metal this week
ABC is "U" for Unused Stash. I've used my decoupage sheet which I've had for ages and my Swirl Punch which is much neglected
Cupcake Craft is Blooming Charming (I loved that theme!)

I'll never be the Pile It On Queen but that's not bad for one card.

Thanks for looking. I think I'll be back to my usual stamped image next time. I love colouring in!
