Hello everyone!

And a good day to you all!

I have managed to ascend from the depths of agony (for some reason, I've been having all sorts of trouble since my trip to the dentist. The pain last week and over the weekend was unbearable!), to bring you all my offering for the upcoming LOTV 10th Birthday!

 As always, what I ended up making was nothing even remotely close to the idea I first had, but I'm still pleased nonetheless...

I used two complementary images. First of all, Wish upon a star.  I teamed her up with Baskets and Bunnies paper, and had fun embellishing with a couple of dies, flowers, pearl brads, wooden heart and more!
The sentiment is from the Sentiment Tags set. A couple of numbers - printed out on the PC then covered with paper and inked slightly to make them stand out - add the finishing touch.

And then I used Dainty Dancing on the inside. I coloured her the same and used the same paper as a mat, but otherwise kept the inside plain and CAS.

Naturally I would like to enter this into the LOTV challenge this month, which is to make them a 10th birthday card!

Other challenges:

The Ribbon Girl -  Lovely Lili, Anything Goes
Stamping Sensations - Use dies and/or punches (3 dies used. Doily, scalloped circle and corner)

Hope everyone is well, and that your day is a most pleasant one.

This is utterly stunning Sammy! It's so pretty and girly and the touches of yellow work so beautifully with the pink. The flowers and lace make it feel really special and the CAS inside is the perfect complement :-)
