Happy Birthday Natalie!

It's Natalie's 18th Birthday today and this is the card that I made for her. It should be safe to post this as she should have received it this morning.

The image is from Elzybells and is the first time I've used my new stamp! Coloured with my whispers pens and I paper pieced the dress. Matted onto metallic pink scalloped circle frame cut with my nestabilities. Background paper is from papermania sweet nothings range and matted onto coredinations cardstock. Stitching done on my sewing machine. Swiss dots folder used to emboss the base CS. Die cut sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and Doodlebug rub on's added to personalise!

I added a little pocket to the inside of the card and put a little gift in there!

I decided to put in a Baby Millie stamp by Sugar Nellie that I got recently from Funky Kits. Paper again from papermania sweet nothings range, doodle stitching added. Stamped sentiment from a studio G clear set! I hope she likes it!
