This card i was asked to make late last night,
 i had some of the elements already made and was just deciding on how i wanted to put them together.
and this is what i came up with, the base and oval i designed and cut out with my trusty cameo, i added my own digi of flowers and coloured these in with pro markers.
The background is yellow card from my stash which i embossed
with a spellbinders embossing folder PATCHWORK.
The edges of the oval and edges of card were distressed with Tim Holtz scattered straw ink pad

Then i added a secret tag which pops down the back of the floral oval, then i added ribbon, organza satin edged in gold, wuth a carnation and ivy leaves then i added a tiny little humming bird charm.
To finish of the front of the card i added a butterfly inked to tone, some string beads to act as the butterflies trails, a happy birthday topper by Anne Marie designs, another flower and ivy leaves. I am entering this card into the polkadoodles challenge
Celebrate the occassion 
 Stamps, Fun, Creativity: ,

I felt this card needed a little extra and so added some leaves to the front and made a matching box
