A Birthday Card

Hi folks!
I thought I'd best put you out of your misery!
Some of you have already had a peek at this card!
I hit publish instead of save when I added the photos & didn't have time 
to write up the proper post until now! Sorry! 

I made this card for a friends birthday.
digital stamp from The Stamping Boutique
I played with the image in my graphics programme & merged two 
to make them look like they were clinking glasses!
I coloured up the images with a mix of flexmarkers & promarkers.
Then chalked the edges with a little
 Colourbox Cats Eye Fluid Chalk Inkpad.

The papers were a freebie with a magazine ages ago!
I'm trying to use up as much of my stash as I can before I get
some new bits & pieces!
The lace & ribbon were from Dainty Paperie.
The plain paper is just normal printer paper.
I got a big pack of assorted colours from Lidl.

I decorated the inside of the card with a co-ordinating paper.

The sentiment tickets are both from The Crafty Pad.
I chalked them with my little pad too.
Thanks so much for dropping by!
It's always good to see you!
