Penny Black Saturday Challenge - girly card



I was meant to be getting my 3 yr old to help me make a card for a little girls birthday party today, but I kind of took over, and he got bored!! Anyway, I've made a card for Lily, stamped a PB image onto shrink plastic (coloured with prismacolour pencils), ran it through my xyron to put a magnet on the back, then stuck it onto the card with removable adhesive. I used my cuttlebug dies to make the letters, number and happy birthday with lovely glitter card (the expensive stuff that I save for special occasions (hmmph), some paperstock, and my tri-fold card (tutorial on my blog)!

Click on the photo for a better look - the photo hasn't come out too well!

I think she'll like it. Now to get the kids ready for the party ...
