A Sentimental Birthday Card

Firstly i must apologise for not being around much but we had company over the weekend ( My eldest son ) and i thought it would be rude to blog and stuff rather than spend time with him. So i'll be popping around your blogs to leave you some comments.
Here's a birthday card i made using 'Frou Frou' cd from Crafters Companion, CC Embossalicious folder, Cuttlebug spots folder, some spotty ribbons from Crafty Ribbons and TH Distress ink.
