My daughter's birthday tomorrow!!

Feel as though I've been AWOL this week, hate it when life gets in the way of important things like blogging and making stuff!!  Anyways, it's Friday tomorrow and my lovely number one's birthday.  This is the card I've made for Holly, who'll be 22! I watercoloured the  Aspects of Design image with Distress Inks, and used various makes of paper including Basic Grey, Daisy Bucket and My Mind's Eye Penny Lane.  The lace is from LLB ( pack in my candy which ends on Saturday!)  I've heat embossed the edges with gold and the same with the swirl in the corner.  I also masked off the image and stamped and embossed the background with a script stamp.  Spot the deliberate mistake - if you look carefully, you may see that the writing is upside down!!  However, it's in french and it's the effect rather than the meaning!!

I've also made a matching journal book for her as she a bit of a song writer and loves writing down her thoughts and lyrics that pop into her head. 
Thanks so far for all the wonderful comments and peeps taking part in my candy- I'm quite amazed!!  Only two days to go if you want to sign up!

Will try and catch up with some challenges and blogging over the weekend - I even missed WOYWW this week!!

Loadsa Luv!
