Happy Birthday Lynn!

Today I want to shout across the pond......Happy Birthday Lynn!!

Lynn and I are cousins and therefore have always been connected although we live in different countries. But over the last 18 months, and through our love of card making, we have become a lot closer and I feel blessed to have her in my life. Our new connections means the world to me, so today we are raising a glass to you Lynn!

And my card today is for Lynn. Hopefully it has arrived in the post o.k-if not Lynn, read on to see what it should have looked like!!

I wanted to use the leaf dies and stamps as Lynn has often commented to me how much she loves these.  I have used the colour combo set by Mynnette for the third card in her DT call (details here). This was a tough combo-suede, baby blue and olive. I did have to think a while on this one but had the idea of looking through my stash of buttons to find a suede one and actually found one that I think is a pretty good match. I then die cut a flower from, much neglected, blue felt. I masked off the strip and did some inking and stamping in the colour combo.

And here is my card for Lynn and my third card for the Mynnette's DT call.

I am also going to enter this into the Totally Gorguss 'button' challenge, and Crafty Catz 'add texture' challenge.

Have a fun day Lynn xx
