Happy birthday to my BFF

One of my very best BFF's had a birthday earlier this month and I needed to make her a very special card. She is a Siamese-lover and when I came across this image online I printed it in black & white and then coloured it to match her cats more closely. The papers are from Bo Bunny and really match her personality - vibrant, colourful and fun. I lightly sanded and inked all of the papers plus I tore and inked the middle stripe (using the actual paper design for my guide).

My favourite part of the card is the medal on the front. I stumbled across a bunch of metal highland dance medals at a garage sale and I think it makes a perfect embellishment. I covered the dance competition name/date with the flower and then added a bit of sparkly ribbon. Totally fun!
