Happy Christmas Birthday

Was asked this week for a card for a Christmas Day birthday.

I used Pink Petticoat backing papers and image coloured with Sakura glitter pens using a water brush for a water colour effect. Don't know if you can see the glitter in the pic but it's a lovely subtle effect. Finished off with a computer printed sentiment and organza ribbon. Had to try to find a suitable sentiment for an insert, (I must say that I don't usually bother with inserts so that customers can add their own words, I think it makes cards much more flexible) anyway I turned to my friends on the Trimcraft website for help and this is the sentiment I chose:

I wish for you this Christmas Day, all you wish yourself,
A birthday wish in bright array and cards upon your shelf.
And should you need some special thing, a gift for which you pray,
I wish for you that the Lord may bring you many more birthdays..

and here is the card:
