Summer birthdays


The challenge this week at Ladybug Crafts Ink was chosen by Sue and its SUMMER BIRTHDAYS.
This challenge will last for the month of July as we are all on different breaks, so the good news is you can enter up to 3 times!! More chances to win:)
 I made this card for  a 13th birthday for a friends daughter. Nice time to have a birthday, no school to worry about and the holidays stretching out before you:) I used the lovely stamp set called Hightops and I paper pieced the whole lot apart from the laces and straps. The sentiment is from the same set!

Papers - Hot off the press and black card
Embellishments - ribbon from LCI  glitter, faux stitching
Sentiment - Hot off the press ticket sentiment
