21 Again

My post today is another of the four 21st Birthday cards that I had to make recently, this one from Mum to Daughter. I've used Lavinia stamps for this one with  Mustard Seed and Worn Lipstick distress inks for the background. The poppy pods were coloured using a distress pen in Ripe Persimmon and then a Wink of Stella over the top and also on the wings. The flowers were made using Tattered Lace duo folders and dies, coloured with the same distress inks as the background and I coloured the gems to match. I would also like to enter this card into the new challenge that has started over on the Perfectly Created Chaos blog which is Stamp It. Do pop over and take a look and maybe even join in too it runs until the 20th September.



Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
