I'm back!

Sorry I have been missing for such a long time, but now I am back and getting into card making again.
A friend is turning 65 in a few weeks time, so I have made this card for her. I have used a template from  Cardmaking Paradise (link is on my sidebar) and cut it out with my Cameo.
I used a Penny Black background stamp all over the front, using Mermaid Lagoon DI. I also sponged the edges with the same ink. I added some flowers and a corner flourish cut from snippets for decoration.
Challenges - Sweet Stampin - how old?
                     Less is More - coloured background
                     Pixie's crafty workshop - snippets
                     Southern Girls - anything goes

Love this card Glennis! Super to use the numbers topped with those lovely flowers - a card to treasure! And it's great to see you back - I was beginning to wonder if all was OK.

Glennis that is lovely! Your friend is sure to appreciate that. The background stamp is fabulous, I really like the blue on blue palette. A really pretty 'big birthday' card. Thanks for joining in the fun with us this week at Sweet Stampin' and we hope to see you back again soon. Hugs, Wends x Sweet Stampin' DT

This is a fun card Glennis. It doesn't look as though you have left any completely blank 'white space', but I'm sure your friend will be thrilled!
Thanks so much
