Thanks Mum and dad

Hello lovelies - I do hope you're well and happy! I'm good but feeling quite tired - I think the moonlight walk is catching up with me!

I've got a card to show you that I made to give to my mum and dad to say thankyou for my birthday goodies - they loved it and now I can share it on here.

The card was created by using a light purple pan pastel all over the background having masked off the moon first- then I added the mask from Imagination Crafts and went trough in DI milled lavendar first, then brushed corduroy and then with shabby shutters on the green bits. Between the mauves I shifted the mask slightly to give the illusion of 3D. Afterwards I stamped the fairies from Lavinia stamps in black archival and then the verse from Clarity stamp in the moon. Then it was just a case of matting and layering and bobs your uncle.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Lavinia June challengelaviniastamps: Lovely Lavendar
Sunday Stamper pinkleart-Purple Haze
Cute card Thursday:cutecardthursday Once upon a time

Hope you have a fabulous Friday and thanks for dropping by. I do love to read your comments and try to get around to as many of you as I can manage. Big Hugs and happy Friday!
