Lynsey's birthday

Thursday was my gorgeous daughter Lynsey's birthday so of course I had to make a card for her. I'd forgotten I had this stamp and although I'm a big fan of Leanne Ellis's images I hadn't got round to using it yet so when I spotted it while flicking through my unmounted stamps I thought this was a suitable time to ink it up for the first time. 

I coloured the image with Promarkers (have you checked out the extra fine nibs yet - I'm just about to order a batch!) and once again used backing papers from the Cloisonne set from GCD Studios - loving these papers :o) The lace is almost the last of a length I've had in my stash for ages and I swapped the pale blue ribbon it came with for one which matched my colour scheme.

I also decorated the box (a lovely necklace Neil picked out as one of her presents was in), to match the card.
