BIRTHDAY TIME {Guest Designing over at My Besties 3D and More}

{Guest Designing - MY BESTIES 3D AND MORE}

It is such an honour to have won another guest designer position over at
MY BESTIES 3D AND MORE
{February 2019 Challenge, starts on the 2 February} 

Thanks so much Julie. Please hop over and have a look at all the guest designers' and talented design team's creations.

I have created this little center step card using this cute cute little BESTIES Troll called HUGGABLE HARRIET which you can purchase  here.

The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC .
The papers (are from my scraps file) and button are from my stash.  The crocheted button flowers have been made for me by my special sister in law.  The folded Corner was created with a scallop square punch.  The background is an image from MS Greeting Cards.  I coloured the image in Photoshop CS3.
