Good Morning everyone, I can't believe it's so long since I posted a card..... but we have been really busy with the kitchen, it's almost at an end now, just the tiling and kick boards, but they come with there own problems too as the floor isn't completely level, it's sorting out the problem area's that takes the time!... Anyway on to my card for today.... it's bursting with wonderful wishes for my granddaughter Candice who was fourteen at the beginning of the month.... where does the time go!! I have used a LOTV art pad, these are so handy no colouring required lol!!.. I made this card a couple of months ago, as I knew I would be rushing as her birthday is so close to Christmas.. Candice really liked it especially the inside, as there was a little pocket with a nice surprise inside lol!!

The Inside

This card came together so well, the gorgeous papers are 'Country Lady' by Mary Fran, image is from Art Pad 2, sentiments are 'Every day Grundgy Messages' and 'Quoteables - Celebrate' all from LOTV.  I also used La La Land heart die and a Die-namics border, Joy Flower die and a Doo-hickey swirl die and heart die.. gold mesh ribbon (ribbon girl)  which you can't see too well as it's in the middle of the patchwork paper.. pearls, sparkly brads and believe it or not stickles on the candle flames and little smartie's and icing on the cake, but it doesn't show up on the photo's at all... distressed all the papers and card with Tim Holtz Vintage photo ink.. hope you like it.
