Aurora Wings Ballerina 70th Birthday

Good morning and Happy Bank holiday to all my special friends and  followers today I'm sharing a commission card I made a few weeks ago Its very similar to one I made for a 65th earlier in the year, but this was the design my friend who asked for it wanted, I did however enjoy making it as I do love painting this stamp. I changed the papers and lace but the colour scheme is the same.

If it keeps raining I think it will be a crafty afternoon for me. Enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend and I  hope its sunny for you. Love and  hugs Carole x
