Good evening all!This card was made for one of my OH's work colleague's whose birthday is next week thought i'd get it done early so it was'nt a rush job because my OH usually forgets and asks me the night before.I love making personalised card's as they are not something you can get just anywhere.I have used the gorgeous BG Urban Prarie papecollection,you can't go wrong with BG!The letters are also from the same collection.I have distressed the edge's of the paper's with my distressing tool loving this technique at the moment and it seems to work really well with these paper's.I have also used my lovely new labels nesties and papercelar lace.

the inside...
and finally the back...

thanks for stopping by your comments are really appreciated.hugs amanda xx
