Thank You

Hi - thanks for visiting, hope you're all having a good week,  I've had a play with a gorgeous stamp that I received in a parcel of stamps from a lovely blogging friend, Thank You!  She just wanted them to be used and loved - and I love this lady - her name's  Yvette (Stamp It rubber stamps) and doesn't she look lovely in Pink!
I've used the Tattered Doily die for the card base,  which I distressed with Spun Sugar and then stamped with an Inkylicious 'spot' stamp in the same colour.   I added a back, so that it can stand.
I am entering this at :
  In the Pink - Ribbon and Bows
  Make it Monday - Anything Goes   -  (I was the featured card last week)
  Creative Craft Challenge - 1 image/2 papers/3 flowers
  Bunny Zoe's - Shabby Chic/Vintage
  Ooh LaLa - Stitching

Well, after a bit of light relief, its back to some more Christmas cards!

She is quite a proper lady and deserves a lovely card which you have made for her. Very dainty and very apropos given the nature of her station. Beautifully made Avril!
