Girl and Squirrel Birthday card (The Paper Shelter image)

Hi everyone,

This is my last card of the day and it's very different from all the others as it has more of a shabby chic feel. I have used a beautiful image from The Paper Shelter, isn't it a lovely scene? The fence is from FWAB who are having a 50% off sale and for those overseas this means huge savings as our Aussie dollar is also down so you get our beautiful products for next to nothing but only for this month (see below for more details).

Flourish with a Bling have a 50% off sale all throughout January, 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!
