A Blooming Birthday

Hello everyone, for Cupcake Challenge 71 we have a theme of time for celebration, which is pretty open ended, and this week we are sponsored by our very own Kathrin with a fabulous prize of a set of four personalised stamps. I am also entering this card into Creative Card Crew Challenge 41 which has a theme of anything goes, Quixotic Challenge 7 which has a theme of lace and Charisma Cardz Challenge 50 which has a theme of anything but christmas.

This card is a commission for someone for their mum's birthday and the image I have used is from Penny Black. I have coloured it with distress inks and it took ages to colour! The DPs are all from papermania and I used my swiss dots folder for the embossing. My lace element is my punched edge which I used my MS doily lace punch to make, but if this doesn't count, I understand!

Card/Paper: Pink and white card, Papermania - Blueberry hill
Stamps: Penny Black - Blooming Teapot
Colouring: Distress inks - fired brick, spiced marmalade, peeled paint, dusty concord, faded jeans, worn lipstick, broken china, vintage photo, weathered wood, black soot.
Embellishments: Flowers, pearls, PM pearl brad
Tools: Cuttlebug, swiss dots folder, leone em branch punch, MS doily lace punch

Thanks for looking x
