Birthday wishes

I'm back! We had a lovely ten day break and then things have been very hectic around here ever since to say the least. More on what we have been up to later.

It is my daughters birthday tomorrow, here is the card my Mum asked me to make for her. I have used Distress inks to colour the image. Colours used: Tattered Rose, Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord, Scattered Straw, Frayed Burlap and Barn Door.

Punched and layered a deep edge border off setting it to give a shadow effect and trimming with wide glittered organza ribbon. A Prima flower arrangement finished off with punched leaves.

I have taken to pieces a Prima fabric flower added a brad and charm

 side view showing the punched border and flowers with the bling centre.

Lots of new stock now in the studio including Art Bin Storage boxes, assorted albums, two new 7 Gypsies paper ranges, some fabulous Christmas Bo Bunny and Black Market Paper Society papers and the Magnolia stamps, dies and papers are due in on Tuesday.

Hope you are all having a great weekend.
Happy crafting, Lynne xx

Fingers crossed that this will now publish!
