Raspberry and Lime Revisited

Gosh, it's very misty this morning there's a proper Autumn feel about the day!
Today I've a special birthday card to share - it's the one I made for our niece's 18th birthday.  She's the last of our nieces to hit 18, thought there's a few nephews sill to go.

Some time ago we had a "Raspberry and Lime" challenge on The Daring Cardmakers and  in creating my card I had a few false starts.  I was quite happy with how things were going while I was making it, and then I had a brain freeze and couldn't decide where to go next.  So I ended up setting that card aside and making something else - you can see that HERE

I did go back though, and Emily's card was the result.
To make it I used the October LO from The Sketch File Blog

Stencilled background: "Mini Spinning Tops" 6x6 stencil (Crafters Workshop)
Bazzill card
Ribbon, Lace gems and flowers
pc generated Sentiment
Dies: Tonic Nested Rectangles

Sketch File October

Thank you for visiting, have a great day :)

Hi Kathy this is a stunning card your niece is going to love it. I find waling away from something that isn't working helps sometimes when you go back the ideas seem to flow. Take care. Hugs Jackie
