Here's to age....and those of us who never show it!!

This stamp has always amused me and being sentiment and image together makes life very simple.
I wanted to add a bit to it and as my friends favourite colour is green I went with the green theme.

As you can see here, its just very basic colouring with copics and a few glitter pen dots to add a bit of bling to her top. Bit of green eyeshadow, all she needs is a bit of lippy and she is ready to go.
Die cut the panel with the wonky stitches die, then cut the card front with the same die to give me a perfect match for the stamped image and sentiment.

I set the die cut piece into the card front so its one layer (kind of). Its adhered on the inside and I will add a paper layer for writing on that will cover up the white patched area.

Finished the card off a big clear sparkly gem and stamped the extra sentiment
"It's exhausting being this fabulous.... I don't know how we do it". I know this will get a laugh from her.

Perfect for a laugh mmmm

Thanks for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
