Jenny's 60th

This is a birthday card for my friend Jenny, she is 60 today & the image on the stamp reminds me of her. She & another friend , Joan, are off on a  Med cruise tomorrow. I missed Jenny's birthday meal last night cos I was unwell but I hope to see her this evening ... with a bottle! She doesn't do computers so I know she wont see this! lol.  The stamp is from Debbi Moore, Backing  paper from Sharon Duncan every day embossibilities, Cuttlebug script embossing  folder on coredinations whitewash  paper.... can't remember where the HB stamp came from but I love it.

Inspiration from Handmade Decorative Books by Sue Roddis

I had to wing it a bit cos I didn't have the same card, inks rubber stamp etc. but I did  enjoy the process of messing about with different inks & card till I came up with some thing I liked! (oooer how did "liked" go like that? was it something I did.. must've bin but no idea what. lol
I used Lavinia dandilion stamp stamped onto a background of white cardstock which had been splodged with die inks, spritzed with water & when dry spritzed with Glimmer mist.
