Firstly today I need to say happy 6th birthday to my baby boy....
Wishing you an extra special day Callam.  xxx

Now onto the card this has been made for my neighbours other daughter who's birthday is in a couple of days.  I have used tartan paper to match the skirt on the Sugar Nellie stamp Goth girl.  I'd like to thank Kate at Papercraft Boutique for the idea of using eyelets to add the lace up effect also matching the stamp.  I have again used the small tag punch from SU...me thinks I'm going to be using it a lot!
The cards stock and embellishments were magically found, as always, lurking in my room.  LOL.
I have coloured the stamp with my copic's which seems to be my first choice medium at the mo.  Thanks to Judy for some more top tips!!

Right I'm off to enjoy the weather down on our local beach, picnic here we come!  Loving this sunshine we seem to be getting just now, might even chance putting my bedding plants in later.
