A birthday card I can actually use!

Yay, I made a birthday card that isn't necessarily for a teenage girl, which means I can actually use it :P The gorgeous fairy silhouette is by Stitchy Bear Stamps and I created the papers in PSP. I've entered it into a few challenges that need to be sparkly, and I'm not altogether sure it's obvious where the sparkly bits are, so here's the list. The gems in the corners, the sparkly ribbon, around the main image, around the circles, the swirls at the edge of the fairy wings and the stars in the middle.
These are the challenges I made it for:
One Stitch At A Time - any celebration
Crazy Challenges - lots of shapes. I have squares, circles, rectangles, hearts and stars
Lexi's Creations - birthdays
Anything Goes Cgallenge - black and white
Craft Your Passion - sparkle glitter or bling
Papertake Weekly - sparkle
ABC Challenge - G is for glitter
Southern Girls - glitter
Craft Your Days Away - at least one circle, 2 bps and 3 ribbons
Totally Gorjuss - sparkle
Sweet Stop Sketches - sketch amd sparkle
Karber Monthly Challenge - fantasy

Hi Susan,

I finally made it over from Vanessa's party.
Won't explain my excuses but glad I dropped in. Your graphics are very lovely, like the Halloween card very much.
Following your blog now, hope you can make it over sometime.

I'm having a draw for a little something for HALLOWEEN OCTOBER 31ST so do drop in for a little while.
