Oooh La La!


Evening all!

How you all doing this lovely October evening?  I have been 'trying' some stamping...I seriously am not very good with embossing and stamping, but I am definately giving it a go!!

Here is a 40th birthday card I have made for a friend:


I got the stamps from Pottery Barn - aren't they lovely?  I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

One Stitch in Time #84 - Shapes  - I have various different shapes on this card!
 Incy Wincy Designs #116 - Recycle - I have recycled the pink velvet ribbon on the side from my daughters summer dress!
 Tuesday Taggers - Taking to the skies - The Eiffel Tower goes waaaay into the sky!
Fab n funky #95 - distressed or torn - my edges are distressed and torn (whoops!)
Digistamps # 30 - use 2 same embellishments - I have used the black ribbon twice.
Pixiedust Studio #97 - Happy Birthday - this is a 40th birthday card

Thank you for stopping by and make sure you go and pop by Top Tip Tuesday - for our layer it challenge!

Hugs
