CD Sunday challenge - Happy Birthday

Hello everyone
Thank you for popping in, especially as there has been a bit of a gap again in my blogging.
Well I have cut it fine once again, as this is my entry for last Sunday's CD Sunday challenge.  The theme to be a Happy Birthday card, as it is their birthday, & may they have many more.

I think I will show the photo of the card first & then talk about it;

It is a centre stepper card design taken from My Craft Studio - Encyclopaedia CD, Volume 1 - letter C.  I used one of the background designs from the CD for the stepper card with the template shape on the reverse.  Before printing I changed the colour to one as close as possible to the design sheet. There are two effects on this card that I seem to be doing more of these days.  Fine cutting out & using glitter.  You may just be able to see the glitter on the throats of the flower on the floral arches & on the dragonfly wings.

Here is a close up of the main panel, followed by a closer look through the arches;

This lower photo was taken through the right hand arch which allows you to see better the little panel on the next step.

I do enjoy working wiith monochrome designs & this one is delightful.  Made for the challenge but I have just the right person it will suit when their birthday arrives.

Thank you for popping in I am off to do some more crafting now & look forward to seeing what the CD Sunday challenge will be tomorrow.

A great card. It looks quite complicated but so well executed. The Irises look beautiful.
