A birthday card for a very dear friend of ours.

Yesterday it was our dear friend Karen's birthday and this is the card I sent to her to celebrate the occasion. A big thank you to Annie who while at Westpoint last week had bought this stamp and was showing us at one of our coffee breaks. I just knew it would be the perfect stamp for Karen so I went and bought it before leaving the show. I've created my own background on the base card with some flowers from a couple of Dawn Bibby stamps sets. I cut out the nestie shapes to stamp the camper van onto and then matted it onto cardstock and patterned papers. I've coloured it in using a blender pen and SU ink pads. The sentiments came from January's Little Claire stamp club that I belong to - again just perfect for Karen. I hope it arrived in time and that Karen liked it and had a wonderful birthday.
