Happy 30:th!!!

















Today I'm off celebrating my 30:th birthday and I thought you would get something nice to look at meanwhile (since you're not getting any cake ;)
















Here's my card I made for the whiff of joy challenge blog this week. So those of you who go there have already seen it, not as detailed though. It was a sketch with the middle part shaped like a gate. I instantly thought of this stamp, Charlotte with mailbox, when I saw the sketch. This is the first time I've used this stamp that I got last week and these papers from Basic Grey. I got the stamp and a bunch of Moonlight whispers Kraftin' Kimmie stamps last week.. I bought them at stamp and create and I can seriously recommend the shop. It's run by Lacey and it's seriously one of the best shopping experiences I've had. She is so helpful and I managed to buy during a special she had which made the stamps even cheaper since I'm always looking for great deals. The shipping was great and fast and especially great to Sweden (And no, I'm not getting anything out of advertising, lol)
The text stamp that says "love inside" is from a set of stamps I won as candy. Worked great with this card! I made the envelope by colouring plain white card I use for my stamped images with almond promarker I think it was (same as for the mailbox). Then I stamped on it, added the black lines and dabbed black ink around the edges to make it stand out. I also added a shade under the "flap".
















Ribbons that were originally white and that I coloured in with promarkers to fit perfectly:















Hearts were cut out with different dies and punches and I sandpapered some of them to get that white border.

Hope you've liked my card. Now I'm off to bed so I can actually get up tomorrow to celebrate and not sleep away the whole birthday, lol. Although if it's any day you should be able to do exactly what you want it's your b-day, right?

Ok, now I seriously have to go. Hoping to make it to bed before 3am. It's 2.42...
:D

Stoooort grattis på födelsedagen!!! Skönt att mitt kort kom fram i tid, vad kul att läsa dina kommentarer om det! Roligt att du lade märke till blomman...

Stoooort grattis till din gäst-dt hos WOJ, till din top-5-plats med sweetpea-kortet, och att du blev tillfrågad att göra en beskrivning till den söta vagnen! Den bara måste jag kolla in sen...

Hoppas du har haft en super, super födelsedag!!!

/Kram ScrapLinda
