Passion for Papertrey

Good morning everyone! It's another glorious Indian Summer day here in Warwickshire.

I am finally able to enter a challenge at A Passion for Papertrey. The theme this week is Birthday Bash.

I have used the Papertrey stamp set "Everyday Button Bits" for both the image and the sentiment.

The gorgeous DP is from Cuddly Buddly and is one of their free downloads, which you can find here.

Here's what I used to make this card:-

Stamps: Image and Sentiment Papertrey Ink "Everyday Button Bits"
Ink: Brilliance "Thyme" and "Pearlescent Purple"
DP: Cuddly Buddly
Tools: Nestabilities "Square" and "Label Trio", Martha Stewart "Doily Lace" punch, X-cut large daisy punch, small flower punches from a Create and Craft set
Accessories: Hero Arts pearls, other pearl from ebay and ribbon from Dunelm Mill

Thank you for visiting my blog today and for any much appreciated comment you may leave.

I hope you have a great day!

Clare xx

Wonderful Clare!
I love those gentle tones. The paper is gorgeous, I think I'll be downloading that too. Your Martha Stewart punch is fab, mine has started chewing paper... most frustrating.
It's beautiful here in Bath too. I'm babysitting Daisy today!
Have a good day!
