Driving Test Congratulations

Hi everyone, hope you're all well. Thank goodness it's not so hot today...I'm sure you could still fry eggs on my sunburn from Saturday! That'll teach me to remember the suncream next time... On the plus side, it takes your mind off your fibromyalgia!

Anyhow, I want to share a card with you which I made for my daughter's best friend, who passed her driving test first time last week. They met at a toddler group in our village and have been best friends ever since, it seems strange that they're both driving now...makes me feel old!

 I just loved this backing paper, and even though it came from a paper pack called Just for him, I thought it was ideal. I cut it with a deckle edge to fit the scalloped card base and inked the edges with faded jeans distress ink. I used a Forever Friends stamp from the New Arrival set to stamp the bunting onto flowery paper from the capsule collection, adding punched flowers with gem centres to make it even more girlie. I made the sentiment using word and matted it in a journalling syle with blue card. I then made some flowers using punches and added gems to the centres.
