Birthday Wishes

I've been drooling over Papertrey Ink's stamps for AGES now, and thanks to the lovely Kate Lewis, I now OWN my very own stamps.  Hooray.  They are gorgeous.
So I had a play today, using THIS cute set, and THESE gorgeous digital tree images from Pink Petticoat. I was so excited to find these stamps - and it's an added bonus that they are a British company.  Obviously I love all the amazing American products, but it's still exciting to support a British business too.  The lovely grid paper is from THIS digikit... I adore it.
I am entering this for the current Embellish challenge (although I think the colours may be a little too light...)
Supplies: Stamps - Papertrey Ink, Pink Petticoat; PP - Bo Bunny, Shelley Castillo (text paper my own design); sewing machine.
This card will be for my mum on Wednesday. :)
Can't wait to play more with my new goodies - thanks again Kate. 
And finally, the winner of my 'Jane's Doodles' giveaway is:
TINA
Please email me and I'll get your digi stamps out to you. :)
