....and not a stamp in sight.

Very unusual for me but I have just finished the card for my niece's 21st birthday card and didn't use a single stamp.  She is a very 'girlie' young woman, loves pink and I had run out of ideas (and had few suitable stamps that she hadn't seen before so out came the pretty papers, pearls, photos and die-cuts (another thing I forget I have) and here is the result.

I do like pink and green together - reminds me of apple-blossom.  Butterfly die was borrowed from a friend and I 'scattered' pearls around and added a couple of metal corners.  Found some peel-off borders at the back of the cupboard and edged the paper with them.

Here's the inside view.

Oops, just realised that I lied in the post title as I did use a stamp, one of Art From the Heart 'sentiments which seemed to suit Sophie down to the ground (or to the shoes).

She is getting a cheque to go with it and a gift bag full of sweets as a new sweet shop has opening in town and she likes 'Nerds' and 'Millions (whatever they are) so I got a load of those plus some other stuff I have never heard of.

Calling round tomorrow morning to wish her a very happy birthday then back to have a play in my journal and I can promise you that there will be lots, and lots of stamps involved in that - and no peel-offs.

The card is really so special. There is no reason that it HAS to have stamping on it and it has come together so well.
I hope your niece has a wonderful birthday.

Hi Ann, Sometimes we need to switch from the norm and do something different and your card is a very pretty card which I am sure will be well received. I like pink & green too nice and fresh. Hope your back is a little better. Have a great day Hugs Mo x
