Happy Birthday, Hayley

It is my beautician, Hayley's birthday this weekend. I was meant to go for my monthly massage but she is busy celebrating her day with hubby & daughter. She owns the salon & it is a vision of pink prettiness. Hayley's Spa. Naturally I wanted to make her a card as a thank you for all the times I have left her feeling fabulous and as everything is shades of pink, white and cream (the pictures do not do the place justice)I decided a mainly pink colour scheme would be just right. I have used the free Art Journey cover stamp from the latest issue of Craft Stamper (March 2010)to represent girliness. The swirl stamp is also a free cover issue design (Jan 2010) The squares are scraps of inked paper left over from other projects, the dark pink torn vellum gives a strong enough back drop to make each piece stand out.
