Gran's 80th

Here is a card I have made for my Gran (in law - I was allowed to adopt her as my granny as had mine still been alive they would both be 110!!) She will be 80 on 15th September. I've also made one for my other Gran in law who shares the same Birthday, how spooky is that! (She is a bit older than 80, about 84 or 5 I think now). Hubby's Birthday is the 16th and then our wedding anniversary is the 18th so I've been a bit busy with the cards, lol!

This one is made with one of my floral stamps, stamped with purple ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. The dragonfly stamp is a Penny Black one. Cuttlebug embossing going on in the background and the paper buttons were a freebie with a magazine.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges (shame there wasn't one for embossing a lot lol!):

Craftalicious - purple and green
Pollycraft-add a little nature
Craft your days away - wings (the dragonfly)

I was going to enter it for a sketch challenge too but now can't find where I got the sketch from! If anyone recognises it, let me know!!

* postscript - I have now found the challenge blog where the lovely sketch came from - OCC sketch blog, yipee! ;-)
