Card Series - Birthday #1

I don't buy scrapbooking or cardmaking magazines often but this particular one caught my eye. It's Australian Simply Cards and I love quite a few of the card layouts in it, so I decided to attempt one of them today by Designer - Bev Rochester.

As I'm still new to card-making, I decided to make it as close to the design as possible. When I get more confident I'll attempt card sketches and put my own spin on them - one day LOL.

So here's what I made today, with close-up shots - list of materials used is below the photos.
