A female 70th Birthday card

Hi Crafty Friends,

My last card of the day is one surprisingly without an image! I created this card for my mother-in-law's 70th Birthday. I wanted her to know I care by making a card completely from scratch - the background I made with a stencil, heat embossing and distress oxide inks. The clock was heat embossed (I didn't even know I had a clock stamp this big until I went hunting around in my stamp boxes!) Most of the rest is using punches and die cuts and the gorgeous flourish is from my company, Flourish with a Bling.

Strawberry Shortcake Birthday card

Hi Crafty Friends,

I have another girly card to show you and this one was made using an old free colouring book image of Strawberry Shortcake. When I first started I printed out lots of colouring book images and I've decided to slowly start colouring them up as I chose really cute ones like this, isn't she sweet? I used a lot of dies and stitching dies for this card as you can probably see but it was fun to just keep adding layers until I was happy with it.
