Memories of First Rugby Star Birthday Card

Hi Crafters,

Today I have a card for the man in your life whom can't forget the old days of  being on the rugby field.
Used Lili of the Valley Die Cut with backing paper from Paper Cellar Papers 6 x 6.
Distressed the outer edges of the Die Cut, than mounted a brown mulberry paper frame. 
Made the die cut look as if it's falling out of the frame.
Just my second time using distressing inks I think I have caught the bug for this technique.

Hi Crafters

Friday already another quick week gone by.

It's a Girl Thing

Hi Crafters,

Many thanks for my first comments and interest.   
 Had an exciting evening last nite with my ten pin bowling league managed to play my best series over three games.   Then my best game of the season so far to reach the top of the female lists.   
 Hoping to attend the Stamp Magic in Doncaster this Sunday, look out for more inspiration.

My second post I attached another Lili of Valley Die Cut called It's a Girl Thing, hope you enjoy.



Used some lovely mulberry paper flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, paper from Back to Basic range.  Punched a scalloped circle, stamp onto white card, sentiment stamp using Lili of valley clear sentiment "Happy Birthday" then coloured with Promarkers. 
Pink card and wide pink organza ribbon.

Enjoy !!!!!!
