Happy Birthday, Ange!

One of my scrap friends (SSG teamie) had a birthday today and here is the card I sent her.
The main card was overstamped with french script. I then coloured a square with distress inks, Victoria Velvet, Shabby Shutters & Brushed Corduroy. Images are Innovative Stamp Creations. Butterfly was stamped in newspaper coloured with peeled paint.
I am going to be all technical now & schedule a blog post for tomorrow as I have finally completed a minibook I begun in 2008 Capturing Time. I embarked on what set out to be a 52 week project but life got in the way and after page 46, Ronda didn't do anymore prompts. I often look at it sat on my shelf beside the sofa & at the weekend I decided to finish it. I came up with 6 final pages & tomorrow I will share the photos.

Ha ha ha , what are we like eh? I think we all start things and put them to one side for 'a while'..... Looking forward to seeing it finished and love the card. That face image and butterfly on newspaper are just stunning. x

This is one of my all time favourite stamps, Paula. She's just beautiful and I love what you've done with her. Those soft colours are gorgeous.
Your finished piece in the post below is perfect too. That little girl with the watering can works so well. You must be delighted with it.
Can't wait to see your album!!
