Rumbles of Thunder!

Whaaaa! Last night I didn't get a wink of sleep due to the extreme weather. The thunder and lightening here was impressive, it kept me awake to the point where at 4am I was actually watching the storm through the window. It doesn't scare me, I feel safe indoors but the rumbling thunder and lightening strokes were enough to keep me from sleeping. I did think about doing a card but as I had to get up for work at 6am I decided that maybe it wasn't the best idea! However, I managed to do this little card last night...

The close up shows the details better. I've used glossy accents on the WISH and on her hair. The glitter stars are done using a dot of glitter glue then dragging away from the middle with a pricking tool...

I'm entering the card in the Stamp Something challenge, which is "Pink Birthday Somethings". They're also looking for DT members so maybe I'll put myself forward?

* Stamp by Leanne Ellis from Sugar Nellie (coloured with markers/chalks)
* Sentiment stamp is from Penny Black
* Paper is from Rayher
* Ribbon is from Dovecraft
* Flower is made using Woodware flower punches

Thanks for popping by, better dash as loads to do before I'm off to work again!
