Doodled & Punched Birthday Card

Flower Birthday Card
I have decided to try a few new ideas and techniques in the next little while, venturing out of my comfort zone like a timid tortoise! I blog hop most days and see lots of wonderful ideas, but that’s usually as far as it goes.

Well,  yesterday I saw this lovely card on Kath’s Blog and was inspired to try something very similar using her basic layout.

I don’t have any flower stamps so I used my large and small retro flower and snowflake punches and doodled on them.

The “h” is from the set of Making Memories alphabet stickers I got in the HobbyCraft sale last week.

The border tape is by Papercellar and I got it in the Dunelm Mill Sale for 80p a roll (10% off I think)

Thank you Kath for inspiring me to try something really new!

Had to come over and say Hi, after the blurb on Cardmaking and Papercraft Forum new letter bit, actually I'm amazed I even read it, but I'm glad I did. Lucky you for finding that great set of stamps at a car boot sale!
Have a crafty day!
