As You Like It Challenge #74 - Favourite Occasion and WHY

Hi Crafters,

We all have a favourite occasion right?
So this weeks challenge should be easy peasy!

At As You Like It this time we want to see your cards or projects depicting your Favourite Occasion and WHY.

I have chosen Birthdays as my favourite.
 Creating Birthday cards for friends, family and for orders has afforded me a very wide and varied platform in which to create all kinds of cards in varying styles according to the recipients tastes. I have been able to experiment with different techniques and designs and each card is a new challenge which I love.
This card was one I made for my eldest daughter's birthday last week.

Papers - Santoro
