This is Ruby. She is an adorable stamp from Whimsy stamps, you can purchase her HERE.

I had a birthday card to make and I decided to use the following sketch from 'Crafting when we can'

I edged the whole card with distress ink to soften it and also the circle of the image was inked.
I created a ribbon strip, with frame attached for the sentiment to go in.

The sentiment was coloured with promarkers, with a tiny but of pink glitter for the dots over the 'i's' to help match the glitter in Ruby's flowers.

The pink & orange flowers tie in with the image along with the soft blue bow. A couple of pearls on the other side and all done :)

Materials used:
Summer Breeze & Garden party
 Paper packs
Pink pearls from EBay
Flowers & ribbon from stash
Tim Holtz tattered Rose distress ink

Thanks for stopping by :)

    1. Thank you Evelyn :)

      And I 100% agree, everyone should check themselves regularly and see your GP if you are worried. After numerous lumps having to be investigated, lots of ultrasounds, biopsies and MRI etc, I can honestly say although the experience isn't nice, its far better than the alternative and far better than worrying yourself sick everyday....Check....and if you find something, do something, hugs to all x
