Happy Birthday Shauna

Happy Birthday to my lovely Inkspirational team-mate, Shauna .   I hope this card has reached her on time (I put it in with your Christmas card).

With all the mail we send out at this time of year, I had to keep it light to post internationally. I stamped the lantern stamp (Sheena Douglass) twice onto the card base and then paper-pieced with some paper that I'd watercoloured with irridescent pigment powders. I drew some strings and stamped the sentiment (Clearly Besotted).

Postage costs for those cards a bit more heavy weight are horrible. But I love CAS and simple designs, and I think this one is eyecatching simplicity. Great job on that own made paper too.
