Hanging Chipboard Birthday Sign

This is a birthday sign that I made for a friend whose birthday falls in March. I thought the Fancy Anya from The Greeting Farm absolutely fits the description of her. I coloured her in with Copic markers. The sign is cut out of chipboard with the Tim Holtz Baroque die and I used the American Crafts Adhesive Backed Fabric Paper as the background. I cut the doily background using the Dainty Doily die from My Favorite Things. I then used some Prima pearls and mulberry flowers as embellishments. I distressed the mulberry flowers with Vintage Photo distress ink by Tim Holtz.

The butterflies were punched out of Cosmo Cricket's Togetherness Collection patterned paper. I added some stickles on the butterflies for some shine. Here is another close up shot of the butterfly.

I also decorated the back of the sign with my birthday wish to her. The square with the sentiment is cut out using Spellbinder's Nestabilities, Lacey Scalloped Squares. The butterflies are punched out with Martha Stewart punches. I used Prima pearls as embellishments with buttons on banners that were cut out using the Rounded Banner Trio die-namics from My Favorite Things.

Hope you enjoyed! Thanks for visiting my blog!
