Rose Birthday Card

Hi everyone, I stopped admiring my tidy crafting space yesterday and decided to make a card.  Everything was so easy to find and at this stage everything went back away at the end of playing.  This is for my Finnish friend who's birthday is next week.  I started with some SU Craft Crumb sprayed with my Smooch Gold Spritz.  Dug out my Spellbinders Labels Eighteen die. Only know what it is as my friend Helen and I were comparing dies yesterday.  The wonderful gingham paper is a paper bag from Japan. I have saved a few of the paper bags from our trip over there as I loved the patterns on them.  The roses are from SU Both Way Blossoms set which I have coloured with my copics.  Finished with some bling and wonderful black Happy Birthday stickers from Sticker Store.  You can't really see in the photo but I have also used the Gold Spritz on the the flower topper.  

Thanks to everyone who stopped by and left such lovely comments about my tidy crafting area. Have to say though that one crafting area is plenty for me so sorry to disappoint but not making any lists. :-)  Although, if you would like to throw in airfare and accommodation I might just have a rethink.

Have a great Wednesday everyone.
