Penny's Birthday!

Hello there! Its my youngest daughter Penny's birthday today - she's 9 today! I want to share with you the card I have made for her ... she is obsessed with under the sea!!!

She saw that piece I made for stamps and stencils and said she wanted it - anyway I thought I would make her a card with a similar design!

The background is made using distress inks and spray stain...

The wildflower dies  (sets 1 and 2 from TH) were used to cut out the vegetation - bigz dies were used to cut the seastar and seahorses. I used distress ink and clear rock candy to colour the seahorses and then more distress after the rock candy had dried. The seastar was covered with prima mini stones.

I stamped bubbles using a stamp from Ryn. 

I am certain she will love this!!!!

She had a pottery party yesterday - my friend Danielle came along and made pots with her and her friends .... and brought an amazing cake along too that I asked her to make!!!
