Dazzle On, Beautiful Daughter..

Do you recall that horrid, ugly card I made a couple of weeks ago to celebrate my daughter's important new job? I had to scrap it, it was so awful. What was I thinking?

So this is version two, and I am soooo much happier with this one!

Have to shoot and catch the post office, but there are big flakes of white stuff coming out of the sky, FAST! So I'd better be quick!

Stamps: Corner stamp from Stempelglede's Grunge Collection (second stamping in Versafine Onyx), then Great Impressions 'Dazzle On Beautiful Daughter', same ink plus clear embossing.) The fern stamp is stamped in Olive Green Staz-On and stickled with Lime Green.

By the way, this layout was inspired by a card I saw on someone's blog. If you recognise it, please shout.. would love to give credit where credit is due.
