Good morning bloggers.  Today's card is for our new challenge at Passion for Markers where the theme is to use dies and/or punches.  My favourite I think.

Birthday card with Lavinia stamps

This is the card I made for the hubster for his recent birthday.  He walks our local fell, Binsey, most mornings and from his morning musings and meditations is writing...maybe a book, who knows!  So the book mountain represents that and there is also a particularly tall tree by Bassenthwaite Lake that he is drawn to.  Oh, and the pheasant - Nick is not an animal lover but feeds the pheasants who visit our garden, from his hand and often twice daily.  The current visitor is Fred, who just hangs about on the steps until he gets fed.  Two, now very chubby, sparrows accompany him!!
All done with Lavinia stamps and masks on a previously made inky background.

I've used a lot of new products released this month from Marianne Designs - all the details below.  And, have to say, I don't think my photo does my card justice - I feel it looks better in real life!   And you can't pick up the glitter on the berries.  Still a full list of Marianne goodies is below.
