Allsorts challenge 21

The fen gate is open today and it's blowing like a goodn. Anyone who knows the fens will understand what I mean.......not a hill in sight so when it blows we know all about it. And with it being so dry lately we have 'fen blows' as well - the fine soil wafting in clouds.
We have really had a treat this week as all the Allsorts DT were given downloads from Pink Petticoat from the new Big Fella range. Pink Petticoat are also sponsoring this weeks challenge and the lucky winner will receive a free download. And there is an added twist this week because if you use Pink Petticoat products to make your entry you can add the link twice on Mr Linky and have double the chance of winning.
I used the Kraft papers and the birthday cake image which I coloured with Promaprkers adding some glitter to the candles. The flowers were cut from the same papers and buttons and raffia added to them. The border is using Fiskars threading water. I stamped randomly around the image with Creative Expressions JN2B using Hero shadow ink soft pool.

Saw your name somewhere in a comment and because my sisters name is Brenda I noticed immediately :)

Lovely card, I like the craft papers with the primair colours and I also like how you flipped the right upper corner.

Liefs, Renata

Fabulous card Brenda- I love Pink Petticoat images and the Big Fella stuff looks gooood! I'll have to try and enter something this week - been a bit slow these last couple of weeks and have just been able to muster up enough inspiration to do what has to be done.

I hope you and Bernie are improving health wise.

Love Lynda xxx

PS I don't like the gusting wind here so am staying firmly indoors lol.
