It's Birthday time for Gill...

I made this card especially for Gill.  She makes me lots of cards to take to the cancer charities/hospices along with mine which makes the donation look really special, the more there are!

I used my last sheet of the blog candy win on this card, and added some gold brads and a new ribbon I got (99p another bargain!).  I always try to get a colour that will go with most cards I make to get the best use out of it. 

The pink edging is from part of my Christmas presents from Di - they are all white, but I coloured them with my promarkers.  I'd love to have a die of several of them so I can make more.  Will have to keep an eye out and also add it to my ever growing wish list!

Anyway I hope you like this card.

Lovely to see my lovely card on your blog. I did wonder what edging you had used and how. I have it on my notice board by my computer and it look lovely, Many thanks again.

Spain calling! Gorgeous card Karen - and I know where there are some more of those strips. Will send you some when I get back home and dive into my stash! I colour them with PMs too. Have you tried making your own 'mats' using a PM round the edge. Great if you don't have a bit of paper or card the right colour - and also for picking up colours from images. Hasta la vista! Di xx
