7th birthday blossoms & bling

I've been trying to get here to catch up on showing you some projects since the start of the month, but life has been just too busy to blog...or even get to check out my fave bloggers either, worse luck. My poor google reader is bursting at the seams! Anyway, cross fingers I get this done before I head to church.
I made this one recently for a good friend's cutie patootie daughter, who recently celebrated her 7th birthday (did you guess?).
As you can see, it's mainly all about punches (which is always a good thing - right?). First, I made the number seven using layered branches punched with the bird punch, then added flowers made with the boho blossoms & itty bitty punches & a hanging bird cage from the Aviary set (why? - I just thought it was cute!). The greeting from Create a cupcake on a punched word window & modern label finished off the punch fest. The birthday girl loves a bit of bling, so I HAD to finish it with some rhinestones - 21 to be precise! You can see a bit more of the details here:
Sorry that the colours are a bit blah in the pics. I was running a bit late (again!) & took them at night. It really looks pretty & a lot brighter IRL.

Well, I hope you like the card & if you have any questions, just ask. Thanks again for your patience with my lack of blogging. I hope I can start posting a bit more often soon.

Inky wishes, Di

Love this card. Hope you don't mind if I case it. My DGD is turning 7 in a couple months and she would love it. Just like her grandma, she loves the bling.
