Kirsty's 40th and gift

A card for my friend Kirsty
who turned 40 on Friday.
We went out for breakfast - yummy!

Again using a feather embellishment.
I love this beautiful image by Leanne Ellis
available from Funky Kits

The background paper I made using waxed paper
sprayed with  cosmic shimmer inks.
It's very glimmery as there is also
mica on the stamped image and the ivy frame.

Her present....hanger bought at a show
Driftwood from a local beach
Hand dyed silk cocoons
wooden heart buttons
and some beads on wire......lots of fun!

I'd like to share my projects this week with
The Stamp Man - Bling it on - my card
The Crafty Pad - It's natural
C.R.A.F.T. - feathers/birds - my card
Sarah Hurley - Dimensions and texture
Creative Belli - anything but a card - hanging


  1. A very Happy birthday to your friend, Claire. I bet she was thrilled with her card and pressie, they are both stunning. I love the sprayed purple background and that driftwood is amazing.
    Thanks so much for sharing them with us at The Stampman this time.
    Hope things are going OK with you and your lovely family. I'm thinking about you all.
    Hugs Lisax
