Sorry I'm Late ...

Shame on me, I missed one of my friends Birthdays recently so this is the card I have made to say sorry. She is on holiday at the moment so she will get it on her return. When this set came out I fell in love with it and loved all the samples by the ATS DT and this card is inspired by those. I layered SU! Bashful Blue CS on to a white card blank then a layer of white CS followed by a strip of Piggy Tales paper accross the bottom wrapped around with some blue grosgrain ribbon. I have then stamped the cute snail with Airondack ink and hand drawn a little trail for him, coloured in with Copics. On a seperate piece of card I stamped the balloons and cut them out adding glitter to them with my Spica pen. I have then stamped the greeting seperate too and rounded the corners to make a tab. The obligatory 3 gem stones added to finish!

STAMPS: CC Designs. INK: Airondack Pitch Black. CS: Craft Creations, Stampin Up!, Papertrey Ink, patterned paper by Piggy Tales. ACCESSORIES: Woodware small corner rounder punch, Grosgrain ribbon by Ribbon Oasis, Papermania Adhesive Gems, Copic At You Spica glitter pen, Copic markers.

  9. Lovely card. Great snail! Where did you get your Spica pens from? I can't find anywhere in the UK that sells them and US postage too high if I was just ordering a couple of those :(
