A fun night out on the town

 Good afternoon, a quick post from me to share the card i made for my daughter's birthday next month- need to get ahead as October is a very busy month for birthdays for me! I've used this stamp before, it always makes me smile as these 3 girls make me think of my lovely daughter and her besties! They've been the best of friends since their first year of grammar school. They celebrate all their big occasions together- weddings, arrival of their children, birthdays etc and they go away on holiday together whenever they can- they all pay into a joint savings account and when they have enough saved off they go! A welcome girlie time away from partners and kids where they can relax and be themselves. They've been to New York, Boston, Dublin, Las Vegas as well as many short breaks and weekends in the UK.

The image is coloured with Copic markers, then fussy cut (not easy cutting around all those long legs :) as I wanted to make it look as if they were looking out over the night city. I found the background image online and printed it twice to build up my card, which is a sort of easel with a double bump! It does fold flat though. 

Anyway, that's it from me, thanks for stopping by and have a lovely evening (or day)

Sounds like fun times ahead for your daughter Chris and what a brilliant card you have made her. I think I need that stamp and wonder why I haven't got it yet. Can I ask where it's from Chris?
