Birthday instead of Christmas

Hello, hello! December is here already. Yay! :D Many cities here are already decorated with Christmas lights and it's very beautiful. I'm planning to decorate the apartment over the weekend. Can't wait! :D Have you decorated your place yet?

Today I would like to show you a card I finished earlier today. I really wanted to participate in this week's challenge at The greeting farm blog, so I went creating. Unfortunately the weather here's been terrible lately (rainy, cloudy and foggy) so I couldn't take the best picture. Sorry about that! The other day I was trying to make a lightbox, but it was an epic fail so I still don't have it. But I know what I did wrong, so I might give it another try one day ...

Anyways, here's my card - something not Christmassy for a change. ;)


I decided to make a birthday card. I've had this pretty blue paper in my stash for ages and I thought it would be perfect for my card. I also used some leftover pieces of the glittery pink paper. I decorated the card with lots of flowers, crystals, doily, wooden butterflies that I received from my sweet friend, ribbon and bead string.For the center of each butterfly I used a pearl and for the centers of my flowers I used some brads that I've had in my stash for what seems like forever and some pearls. Image is adorable double cupcake Anya from TGF. I coloured her with Promarkers and Faber Castell pencils.


I hope you can see all the glitters on the cupcakes and Anya's hair accessory. Embossing behind Anya was done with Crafts-Too embossing folder.

So much from me today. Have a wondeful day!
Hugs! xx

  1. I always know that I'm in for a real treat when I come to visit you Maja! This is absolutely amazing! I am hip deep in Christmas cards right now, so the soft summery colours and gorgeous shabby flowers are a breath of fresh air! Love the wooden butterflies your friend gave you and that gold trim is so elegant especially with the tear-drop pearls dangling down from it! You are just amazing with those markers, your image is perfect! Love that pink glittery paper too! Until next time my dear friend! big hugs :)

  8. Kar škoda, da je takšno vreme, ja, ampak malce se pa vidijo bleščice, ravno toliko, da si lahko predstavljam, kako se lepo lesketa na sončku :) Občudujem tvoje barvanje.

    3. That's awesome. :) Those decorations and lights sure add to Christmas spirit, don't they? I'm very impatient. As soon as December comes I want to put Christmas decorations up - just to have the magic of Christmas in the home early. :)

    1. It was good to make something a bit "different" for a change. I've only been working on Christmas cards lately, so colouring something with pastels felt good. :)

  24. Maja tale rojstno-dnevna lepotička pa je pravi balzam za oči ;))) v poplavi vseh novoletnih. Uporabila si zelo kjuti motivček in mi je zelooo všeč! Metuljček v laseh in metuljčka, ki malo deklico preletavata...krasno si skombinirala. Biserna girlanda in velika roža sta mi nooorooo všeč! Jap, stanovanje je že okrašeno ;))) mož pravi, da naj bo december okrašen že na začetku, da dobi praznični pridih ;)))
    Lp, Jana

    1. Vidiš, v najinem stanovanju sem pa jaz tista "neučakana". ;) Takoj, ko pride december, me zagrabi božično vzdušje; kar naprej mi grejo po glavi božične pesmi in podobno. :)
      Uf ja, enkrat za spremembo sem imela dovolj božičnih voščilnic (celo preveč - to je nekaj, kar se mi v vsem času še ni zgodilo lol), tako da sem si lahko dovolila še ustvarjanje drugih voščilnic (kot je na primer ta - za rojstni dan).
      Hvala za vse prijazne besede glede te voščilnice!
      Pa pa
