Mum can you make me one more card before I return to Uni ?

Oh my, my daughter does keep me busy......I have made so many cards for her this holiday, at least it saves her buying them!

Her latest request was for a 21st birthday card for her friend Amy, however when I made the card I couldn't decide whether I preferred it with or without the birthday sentiment, which do you prefer?

I have used the fashion girl from the Penny Black clear stamp set ' j'aime paris' 30-065, she has been stamped onto white card, coloured with Copics and cut out (minus heart), I then mounted her onto 'Fuchsia Fantasies' 13-001 mix and match card stock that had been stamped with 'Delicate Pattern' 40-047 using Tim Holtz snow cap acrylic dauber. The sentiment is from 'Happy Birthday' 3171C.

Did you know my giveaway is still running, details on how to enter can be found here, if you are in need of more inspiration this week do check out the Penny Black blog where they are focusing on Clean Simple Designs.

Enjoy the rest of your week.
Hugs Cathy

Cathy this is so pretty! I rather like it without the sentiment as I think the "21" says it all :)
and you're such a nice mom for making all those cards for your daughter :)

They are both beautiful. The one without the sentiment might be my favorite, but only by a whisp!

The one without the sentiment is my preference for it allows the beautiful stamped pattern to show & doesn't draw the eye away from the focal image. Superbly feminine & apt for a 21 year old young lady.
