A Birthday Card for Alison

This is a card I made for Alison who is on the DT over at Cards for Men.  I know she's received it so I'm now able to post it without fear of spoiling the surprise.

I started out with the decoupage image which was from a Forever Friends kit.  There were a lot of layers and I thought it would go particularly well in the 'window' card I had from Craft UK.  The sentiment was also part of the kit.  The felt flower is from Making Memories and I bought it from my friend, Claire, aka Hope Jacare, when she was having a stash clearout.

The swirl is my first attempt at using my new cricut which was a late Christmas present.  All in all I was pleased with the overall result.  I have some more of the 'Forever Friends' kits over on my other blog for sale if anyone's interested.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Thank you so much for this beautiful card Donna- I do love it! It has been a really lovely birthday, with a more steady get up thanks to hubby taking our son to school, some craft in the morning and an afternoon at work.
