I've made this simple card for one of my nieces who turns 5 at the end of the month.  I had some cardboard letters in my stash which I painted with white acrylic paint as a primer before I added two coats of pink glitter glue.

I've handwritten the sentiment onto a Sizzix scalloped tag and attached it to the letter Y with ribbon recycled from a clothes tag.

Because the cardboard letters had warped with all the glitter glue I'd used, I had to sit on them once added to the card to flatten it!

To finish, I've scored a line around the edge of the card to create a border.

I'd like to enter the following:
