70th Birthday card

I hope you've all survived the snow had some fun and stayed safe. I've been in hibernation mode and have not left the house since last Friday not that I've really been well enough to leave in the first place. I will have to venture out later this week as I am off to the hospital yet again!! seems to be my second home these days.
Following on from my last post which was a box to hold some money from a collection for a friend who was celebrating a very special birthday, this is the actual card I made for her. All the numbers, name and flowers are covered in stickles which unfortunately doesn't show too well in this photo.
Needless to say she loved them both and had a great birthday too and ended up with 5 birthday cakes.
This card is for the following challenges.
Papertake Weekly - Tie up your loose ends
Creative Card Crew - Girly
Allsorts Challenge 190 - Flower power I have the blue flowers plus all the embossed daisies

Exploding Box


I decided to make  this exploding box for my friend who is celebrating her 70th Birthday this week. I managed to get this out of two 12x12 sheets by making a join in one of the folds in the bottom tier of the cake. I also made a little envelope out of cream card to put some money in which I placed in the lid of the box.
This card is for the following challenges.

Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
Dream Valley Challenges - Anything Goes
Corrosive Challenge - Out with the old - my old was the ribbon rose buds which I have had in my stash for over a year

Happy New Year

 A belated Happy New Year to you all. I hope you all had a good Christmas and got lots of crafty goodies to play with. Finally this week I get to see the ENT consultant and hopefully find out what can be done to cure my chronic sinus problem. I must be the only person around who actually lost weight over Christmas because of it.
This is the second card I've  made this year and was made in rather a hurry this afternoon as the person requires it for Wednesday and only asked me this morning, talk about leaving until the last minute.
I am entering this card into the following challenge Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
