Our amazing niece has a birthday this month.  She’s a budding card-maker but I don’t get to craft with her as she lives in the UK.

Her gift (and this card) is in the mail.  Hope she gets it close to her birthday! (we were a shade late mailing it)

The card I made her uses a WS Anna Wight set.  I’ve only used it a couple of times (though I have no idea why, it’s adorable!)  I didn’t choose this set for any particular reason other than I thought it was time to ink it up again.  Hope Ash likes whales! (plus it’s a good theme for a card-maker from Newfoundland!)

Here’s the card:

I used some cute nautical-themed paper from K&Co and did a little something different with my ribbellishment. (that hasn’t caught on, btw)  IRL the button matches the paper perfectly.  It’s from a Basic Grey package of buttons.  Incidentally, I really need more blue buttons and maybe some green ones too.  I haven’t found a good source other than PTI and I am trying so hard not to order from them (just ’cause it would kill my wallet to add another company to the list I order from).

Happy Birthday (almost) Ashleigh!
