HAPPY BIRTHDAY LISA!!!




Good morning all you felloow bloggers out there. Well it`s a lovely morning here in Ellon and once I`ve this downloaded Ron & I are away out to enjoy the day.
Today is my son`s Fiancees Birthday So Happy Birthday Lisa and hope you have many of them xxx
This is a totally diffenernt type of card for me as it is all papercraft with some stamping techniques.
I must be a bit psychic, as this morning I went to check what the http://http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.com/ challenge was for this week and lo and behold my card works perfectly!! Couldn`t get more pastel than pink and mint. I am also ging to enter this into http://totallypapercrafts.blogspot.com/
For my card this week I used Card stock White & Mintgreen from local craft shop. Pink card from SU. Spellbinders Nestaabilities and cuttlebug embossed folder Stylized flowers. The lace border was a Martha Sewart punch. Border image and stamped florishes were from the Michelle Marsden Stamp cllection Florish stamped using SU Pretty in Pink.
Leafs were punched from punch from L-Em.com. Flowers were from Xcut punches and centred with Dovecraft Adhesive gems Spring Green.
Sentiment from Inkadinkado stamp. Bit of sparkle ultrafine Prisma Glitter.
Right, better go and deliver Lisa`s Birthday card before everyone has seen it before her LOL!!
Hope you enjoy your look around my blog & feel free to leave any comments. To Chrissie & Mandi thankyou for all your helpful comments you leave. It`s good to know we have you to help out if we have gone astray with our interpretation of the challenges sometimes!! Keep up the good work xx

    PS I have to say that the word mint doesn't make me think of chocolate - but digging up the mint that had spread over half the garden. :(
