Jo's Blog Candy



Jo has some gorgeous pink blog candy on offer all you have to do is make a pink birthday card.
I have had this stamp for a long time and have always wanted to have a go at decoupaging it but because it is so intricate I was unable to cut it out successfully... that is until MichelleO sent me the great fiskers fingertip knife wow what a great tool.



I have kept this card very simple because I didn't want to deflect from the image.
The layout has been inspired by another great Michelle from the cardgrotto.

Thanks for looking Sue :o)

I love this card....the kitten peaking out from the tulips is precious...reminds me of the kitten who lived in our house for a while and did the same thing! I love how you cut out the whole image...it's helps add dimension. Great card! Joan

It's fabulous Sue. Looks like that knife really worked...would have hated to try and cut it out myself! Thanks so much for taking part :)
