Happy 30th Birthday

Ooh I remember being 30.......sigh.   Never mind it's someone else's turn now and I hope they enjoy every minute of it!

I was inspired to make this card by a card I saw on Susan's Crafty Chaos.  When I saw this image I thought "I've got that decoupage sheet" and look how good it looks,  So I made this card for the sister of a friend of mine.  Think I went a bit overboard with the embellishments...... it looks a bit cluttered LOL.

Anyhow, here it is, let me know what you think

The decoupage image is from The Crafty Purple Frog.  The backing paper (that you can just see in the top left corner) is from Crafty Chaos Designs.  The ribbon, lace (yes, there is lace) and flowers are all from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge(s)

Thanks for stopping by

Take care
