Make a Special Birthday Wish

It's so nice that you've taken the time to visit my blog today, I really appreciate my visitors and Followers.

Today's project is a little card which I've made to go into the birthday gift I've made for a dear friend.  I made this stationery box (on the right) a couple of weeks ago and wanted to put a few cards into it so she has a little stock of cards for different occasions in hand.

Here's a view of the inside (on left), I've put the cards I've made into the space at the back where there are plain white cards in the picture.  I've also popped a book of postage stamps into the little pocket on bottom left, so she'll be all set to send out the cards.

Today's card has just a simple layout and I used this lovely little image that I received in a RAK recently, no fancy shaped layers, just cut out with my trimmer.  I don't know the manufacturer of the stamp and would love it if any of you could tell me who it's by!  I coloured her with Promarkers and added a little Spica Glitter Pen and Glossy Accents.  The background papers were hanging around in my stash, as were the pale blue half pearls.  The sentiment is from a set of clear stamps by Kanban which are available through Funky Kits and which my pal Annie allowed me to stamp up when we had our crafty afternoon last monday - thanks Annie!

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my card today, I'll be showing you the others in the coming days so I hope to see you again soon.

Got a sneaking suspicion it MIGHT be by Penny Black - as I'm sure I've got some PB stickers with (if not that exact image)a similar image.
Fab project too btw
