Green and Brown Girl's Birthday card (Saturated Canary image)

Hi everyone,

I hadn't created for a whole week and so I had my crafting head in a tizz yesterday/last night and created up a storm, I missed it so much!! I don't know what I did before cardmaking, I get so much enjoyment out of it, do you too? I have 4 cards to show in the next 12 hours, hope you'll check them all out as they are all very different and I'm so happy with them all.

This girl is from Saturated Canary. I have used chocolate pearls from my company, Flourish with a Bling, who are having a 50% off sale (see below) and I was lucky enough to win these great sentiment dies from Let's Craft & Create

Flourish with a Bling have a 50% off sale all throughout May, everything is half off!! I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products and we post worldwide. Please email if you would like rough estimates of shipping, if we can send it as a large letter we will or perhaps get your friends to all buy too and share the postage! If you're order is over $200AUD we will pay half the shipping (international orders).
