Where did my day go to yesterday I do not know! Before I knew it it was half past two and hadn't had my lunch (must of been living off that extra piece of Christmas cake I ate yesterday lol) or much to show for my day either. Did have a lovely surprise though. Won some Ribbon Girl goodies from One Stop Craft challenge, Woo Hoo, loving it I can tell you, thanks girls, a lovely end to the week i can tell you. Okay, my card, was a difficult one, I thought so anyway! For an Eighty year old lady to give to her granddaughter who will be sixteen so wanted to create something she would enjoy giving and hopefully her granddaughter would like too. As I know them both well, I think it works, hope so or it's back to the drawing board fast! I'd love to know what you really think, always helpful is constructive criticism.

White card stamped with Versa Color Old Rose onto  Hero Arts small flowers background stamp.
 Topper stamped with Hero Arts Dictionary Greetings birthday messages with TH distressing ink Antique Linen, then used Hero Arts Anytime messages, inked again with Old Rose and embossed with clear powder. Mounted onto Nesties die cut, embossed with embossing folder.  Butterflies from Hero Arts stamp and cut set, coloured with Old Rose and a sprinkling of Glamour Dust and gems to finish. ~Wee flower punched and gem added.

Insert for card.
Since they live far apart I thought the verse was very fitting.   - Things with Wings - Ribbon  - Keep it simple  - Pretty in Pink  - Embossing  - fav Song/ Love is like a Butterfly

bye for now
