Hannah's 30th Birthday

Grrrr I've just noticed there's a smudge on my camera lens ... I'm blaming my DH after being out at the weekend taking pictures of the lunar eclipse!  And yes, I was up after 3am to see it!  Wasn't feeling just so in love with the solar system when I had to get up for work on Monday morning though ;)

I was asked to make a 30th Birthday card using this Stamping Bella image ... I'm struggling to make any cards this weather, so it was good to have the stamp choice made for me!  Coloured with watercolour pencils.  Lots of Wink of Stella added to the icing on the cake and to her ribbon.  Glitter added to the icing.  Clear gloss added to her crown, plate and shoes.  Silver peel off from stash.  Martha Stewart butterfly punch. Flowers from All Occasions Dies.  Paper Smooches sentiment / alpha set.  DP from Lili of the Valley.

As you Like It - sweet or savoury - I'm definitely all for sweet ... don't think I've ever said no to a piece of cake or chocolate in my life.  (as my waistline will testify LOL)

Hee hee . . . we were both gazing at the reddish moon at stupid o'clock on Monday morning then! Well it HAD to be done didn't it?!

That's a very pretty card and I like the cross-stitched border die.

Hugs, Sarn xxx
