May's Birthday Card

Hooray! I can finally add another card to my blog!
It was May's ( /mayjaysmeanderings/) birthday yesterday and she has received my card so I can now upload it!

Very simple card, but using one of my favourite stamps from Penny Black 'Life of the Party'. If you're misguided enough to follow this blog, you may well be bored by the sight of this little chap fairly soon....!

Hope you all like it!
The image was stamped with Adirondak 'Eggplant' and slightly water-blended, then coloured with various pens from Marvy-le-Plume and Zig Photo-Twin, then slightly glittered with Sakura Tiara pens.
This was matted onto deep lilac Stardream card and the whole adhered onto green/lilac spotty paper on a base card of hammered cream.

The 'turn over' on the top left of the spotty layer, is a scrap of K&Co light card (name not known), the ribbon is from a Brenda Pinnock kit and the purple flower from a 79p bunch from Wilkinsons (..and there are loads left too!). Tag is Anna Griffin.

Just love this cat!
