A stress free card!!!

You know what it's like when one of your children say can you make me a card Mum it's my friends birthday and you follow with the silly line of "When"!!!

Today!! and she's 21, well this was at lunch time!! Couldn't you just K*** them! lol

So out came my stash and Magnolia stamps and this is what I came up with, I think actually the less time you have to worry about the design the better the finished card.

I used a brown bling bazzil, bo-bunny dotty swiss and a sheet from my stash!!! The colours all looks fab together.

I punches the two border with a Valentine lace Martha Stewart punch. Cut out two circles with my nesties and the flowers are Prima with some bo-bunny brads in the middle and my new branch punch!! (My last one broke and I have been lost without it but as usually Lynne came to the rescue) xx and the two beautiful heart pins in just the perfect colours also from The Craft Den.

Used my pearl pen to do a bit of a flourish and added my new little colibries aren't they just adorable!! Some checked ribbon from stash and the 21st was white but sprayed with Walnut Gold Glimmer mists.

Happy 21st Emily xxx

It's a great card and I think it is sometimes easier when we are under pressure. That's why I leave everything till last minute. x
