Happy 30th Birthday Louise

Today is the 30th birthday of one of my lovely teamies from Simply B Stamps, Louise, and Betty drew up this gorgeous image of Louise for us to make her a special card.

I’ve made mine into a pop-up box card, my first one of these and I am pretty happy with how it turned out.  I followed a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers to make up my card and, as it is a different folded card I’m entering it in the current challenge at ScrapbookerPhD.

Being for a 30th birthday I had to make this special and how better than some sparkly golden elements, which I have in my chippie lettering and embellies and even on the 30 Louise is sitting on, although that doesn’t show so well in the photo.  With all my sparkle I am entering my card over at 4 Crafty Chicks.  Stars are the current theme at Cute Card Thursday and I have plenty of those so I am also entering their challenge.
