Pink Birthday Card for my Pink Friend!

Hello Friends

It was recently a very good Blogging Friend of mine's birthday, you know who you are, and because I didn't want her to see her card whilst she was away on holiday, I didn't post it here until now. I know she has seen it so it is okay!  
A very pink card for a very pink kinda lady!
I even stamped the reverse as I was going to tease her with it!  I used spun sugar and tattered rose DIs for the background and aged mahogany for the stamping (black for the lickle stampings on the reverse for those smarty pants who are reading this!).  The stamps on the front are Penny Black, Hero Arts and SU and the reverse is Tim Holtz. The two little stamps "handmade by" and "hand made in Wales" are what I use on all my cards and are so old I have no idea what make they are!  And of course I had to include a Snippet on the front as well as the Snippet fibres. 

Thanks for popping by and have a good week!

Hi Sam

This is fabulous .. .. I love the back just as much as the front!!! In fact the back would make a brilliant card too!!

I hope you had a good weekend.

Love Jules xx

Gorgeous card Sam, love the flower design and the stamped in Wales is brilliant.

Do we get a prize for guessing correctly who the birthday girl was?????

Have a lovely day, stay safe in this yucky rain and wind

Hi Sam, this is even lovelier in real life :) Does that give away who it was for - asses ears sprouting here!

Pink always ticks the boxes and it's a gorgeous card. I'll be keeping it to bring out and sigh over! Snort, even the TH back despite me struggling over TH :)

Where did you get the delicious fibres from?

Hugs and thanks, Di xx

Lovely card, Sam - and I don't need two guesses for who it's for ... all that pink is a dead giveaway :) Beautiful stamping and I really like that sentiment stamp - not seen one with that wording before - and I like the choice of fibre instead of ribbon too - is it okay if I pinch that idea in the future?

Perfect card for a gorgeous lady. Really like the stamped effect and your fuzzy fibers were so much better than ribbon here. I'm sure the Pink Lady enjoyed it so much, and I did too! TFS
