A Year Older, A Lot Cuter!.....

Good morning folks!

I have to make this a brief post this morning because I'm running a bit late for work!

I made a card for a dear friend's birthday and followed the lovely sketch over at Waltingmouse. As a result of the layout I've ended up with quite a clean and simple card for me.... can't believe it!!! Well it does show off the design of my gorgeous Fiskars corner and border rose punch at least!

I've used one of the new Hanglar stamps which I was lucky enough to get on EBay, such a sweetie she is and lovely to colour! The papers are Prima and I added pearls and a butterfly from my stash.

Here are the challenges I'm entering today:

Lovely Hanglar - Stitching

Sentimental Sundays - Pearls and Lace (lace effect from the punched border in this case)

Less Is More - Spring Colours

Make It Colourful - Colour With Shine

ABC - 'P' is for Pearls

Creative Card Crew - No Flowers

Thanks so much for looking ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
