Best Day Ever

The Silhouette challenge over at Try it on Tuesdays 
still has another week for you to join in the fun.
This card was made using a few layers 
 with some distressing around the edges [i.e. using a pair of old blunt scissors].

Last Tuesday I showed you a digital card
 using this hand made topper.
So in true crafter's style of not wasting anything,
 it is now  the top layer of my card.

I used a very old stamps around the edges
 and embossed this with silver powder.

Last week this little girl just wanted to fly away, 
this week she is having  the 
 'best day ever'.

Thank you for taking time to call and see me today. 
I do so appreciated the comments you leave.

  6. Great card Yvonne, and a fab piece of 'recycling' the added stamping makes it look so different.
