Happy Birthday Doodles!

Good morning's Friday 13th and it's my gorgeous girl's 12th birthday today...HaPpY BiRtHdAy Sophie! We are going to Camden shopping so that Sophie can spend her birthday money, we're taking 3 of her friends so it should be a very lively day!

Sophie has made several requests for a 1 Direction birthday card this year and my first thought was to pop down to Clintons cards to buy one, but then I thought, no be brave and make one for her! The card is 8 inches square and I find this size perfick for those extra special people in your life when you want to make them something a bit different from the standard size that we all too often use.

I googled the image and printed it out onto hammered card stock for a bit of texture, I've added stickles around the edge but the camera doesn't show it too well. I'm quite pleased with the end result and hope that she is too!

I'm entering this card into the following challenge...
