A special young lady!

 Today is a special young Lady's 12th brithday! Happy Birthday Freya!!

I wanted to make something more than a card that could be kept and came up with a hanging.. it also combined the first piece that I have had to do for the Crafty Boots Design Team of which Freya and I both made the cut! Exciting huh.

 I used a piece of mount board and coloured it with Worn lipstick distress stain, then stamped the spots with Seedless preserves distress ink (Freya's all time favourite - well so far!) I used a Stampin up dotty background stamp. If you have seen my blog you will know that these wonderful baseball boots have come out again. They are just so super - thank you Artistic Stamper! This time I stamped onto Ikeas lining fabric stuck it to the mount board with mod podge. It is seriously overstamped and grungey but I think Freya will like the look.

The heart is a Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 art part coloured with broken china distress stain and stamped again with seedless preserves distress ink. The script this time was an articstic stamper stamp. "Embrace the adventure is a Wendy Vecchi stamp from the Dressed for Art set. The embellishmets were spare buttons, a metal brad with cotton lace stuck to it and a Time Holtz Philosophy Tag, Journey.
Happy Birthday hope you like it!
