LotV Challenge and Sketch Saturday



Evening, all! Hasn't it been a beautiful day?? Every day is better with sunshine! Though I was a bit tummyish this morning, as last night the old man and I went out for an Italian meal, with wine and Irish Coffee! I met him in London on the way home from a nice visit to my sister's in Oxford, and the meal out was a spur-of-the-moment decision. It was lovely though I ate too much!! AND we had a candlelit dinner at home on Sunday - it feels like we're courting again!!!

I had a request for a card this morning for a little girl's birthday - with no pink!!! So since it's spring I went for green and yellow. The papers are Papermania capsule collection. I added two strips of narrow ribbon (recycled from a top!) to the striped section, and used the doily lace edger punch again.

The bunny is Lotv and so is the sentiment, which is new! I distressed with Shabby Shutters and edged with green stickles. The balloon and the icing on the cupcake have glossy accents on them. The brads and flowers are from stash, and I glittered the ends of the petals.

The Lili of the Valley Challenge is 'Happy Birthday' and the sketch is Sketch Saturday I'm really pleased with this one - I hope my friend likes it!

Thanks for looking!

luv, Mags x
