The Paper Shelter Challenge #166 Birthday Card with a Sentiment

It's time for another challenge from Team B at The Paper Shelter Challenge blog and we have a great one for you all today.  We would like you to make a birthday card with a sentiment in honour of Marie's birthday - Happy Birthday Marie! Hope you have a great day! x

It will be mine next week as well and I'll be that one step closer to the big 4-0! Eeek!

Anyway I used the cute Patissier In Distress along with some pretty patterned papers from the Chocolat and Fraise paper pack - love pink and brown together - my favourite combo! Because I printed this  digi quite large, I kept everything else to a minimum so she should centre stage!
