So that's the end of another exhausting week, and I feel like I am living on a building site at the moment.....next door are having an extension done and on the other side they have been digging the road up all week laying new gas pipes so it's jack hammer city........
I made this card and thought I would enter it in the Daring cardmakers weekly challenge, it's a birthstone themed challenge and the August birthstone is Peridot which is also the national gem of Egypt, the Ancient Egyptians called it "the gem of the sun", so the challenge is to make a card with yellow, greens, limes.....the colour of the birthstone..............so I thought this image and colours were just perfect
I love these stamps they just remind you of being carefree and whymsical.....
backgroung was coloured and stamped with distress inks, and image was stamped and embossed, nestie added with sentiment.....and of course some lovely gems added.....

Hope you like, and thanks for popping by today...

Happy crafting
