Stampin' Up! Birthday Fiesta for Rosie!

Hello, the card I am sharing with you today is the one I have made to celebrate my daughter Rosie's 23rd birthday - I don't know where the years have gone!

Rosie has a bit of a thing for Llamas - you might remember the Christmas card I made with a Llama on it....



Well, she asked me to make her a birthday card with a Llama on - of course I said no prob-llama (sorry)!!

I decided I would use Birthday Fiesta to create a special card for her.  For the past two years I have made box cards for Rosie, she has them out on her bedroom shelf so, obviously I have to make another one don't I?

I chose colours that are on the Festive Birthday DSP.



I used Tempting Turquoise for my base and added some panels of DSP then got to work stamping and die cutting.  

I resisted the temptation to put googly eyes on one of the cacti - I might change my mind and add some later lol!  There are several tiny stamps in this set that are perfect to add finishing touches to the Llama.

Here you can see the strips of card that make the layered panels inside the box.

The sides of the card were decorated with some die cut grass - this useful die is from the Basket Builders Framelits Dies.

I also decorated a panel for the back of the box so that I could write a message for Rosie.

The little wooden posts I used to suspend the bunting on at the back are from McDonalds - they have changed the shape of their coffee stirrers and I have to say, they are rather nice!

As part of the birthday celebrations we are going for an amble with Alpacas - I could not find any Llamas nearby.

After I finished the card I decided to make a picture frame too - I will share that with you tomorrow along with some photos of our amble.

I heard that Alpacas are very good at spitting ... wish us luck!!!
