Birthday Wishes

Hi there,

Today I'd like to share a card I made for my youngest Daughter  Leah for her 18th Birthday which was on Monday. I have to say it does feel strange knowing that my baby girl is now an adult.  She will be off to University later in the year so I am making the most of our time together at the moment. 

Leah likes cards with a shabby feel to them, and especially loves anything made with kraft card. So I tried to incorporate these into her card.

 I used MME papers (I just love all the Lost and Found Collections) and a Waltzingmouse stamp for the tag. This stamp is from one of my very favourite sets - Very Vintage Christmas and it always looks great embossed in white on kraft card.  I used some little alpha stickers for the tag and embellished with some white seam binding, a crochet flower and a fabric covered brad.  the 'daughter 'stamp is also from Waltzingmouse - Roses in Bloom set.  Lastly I dotted a few pink flat backed pearls about.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges;

Deep Ocean challenge - Pink and Brown
 Moving along with the Times - Lots of Layers
Allsorts challenge - It's your Choice (anything goes)
Stampin for the Weekend - Bingo ( ribbon/bows, pearls, pink)

Thanks so much for popping by my sadly neglected blog!
