Anything goes for Sparkles

Hi everyone, it's time for another challenge over at Sparkles Monthly Challenges.

We're celebrating our 2nd Birthday with 'Anything Goes'. Here's my card, it's my daughter Rachel's 21st Birthday card. It was her birthday on December 10th. She just adores giraffes...

  The stamp is a Bazoo one, coloured with Copics and cut out with a Spellbinder die, which I edged with worn lipstick distress ink. The papers are also Bazoo, matted with lime green card. I used a smaller die to make the plaque for the number, inking with the same distress ink before removing it from the die. The numbers are glitter peeloffs. I also added a 'Daughter' peeloff and some ribbon from my stash. I also decorated the inside to match. Here are some closeups...

I gave her this last Sunday, when we went to visit her and take her and her housemates out for lunch. She loved it. It's a shame she was away at university for her birthday but she had a good time partying with her friends and we're picking her up for Christmas in the morning.

I hope you'll hop over to the challenge and see what my talented team mates have produced for your inspiration. If you join us you could win a prize from our fabulous sponsors...
