Late, but with love

I'm late for my niece's birthday.

And whilst we're pretending I was on time,
can we also pretend my card isn't slightly wonky.

I love, love, love this alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.
I used it a lot for my dd's wedding accessories - 
it was great for place cards, dessert table cards, and general signs,
and the letters line up really well.

I stamped my sentiment straight onto the coloured card, and made
a panel from a little die cut hill and postage stamp die.
Lastly I added the bear and balloons on foam pads.

As I was attaching my panel to the base card the foam pads
had a mind of their own, and it ended up a little wonky - 
but that's hand-made cards for you... right?

Caroline, I love this - the colours, the sentiment and that adorable bear. Totally awesome and worth the wait. And anyway a belated card just keeps the birthday celebrations going. ;)
