A Bit of Bling

Good morning all,
A very short post today as I haven't been to bed all night again.  Everytime I change my patches (painkiller meds) I am wide awake for hours and last night was just such a time.
Ok, again before I start I must remind you about the word search.  Todays post is the last one in which you will find words that do not fit in with the text.  There are three final words today, collect them up and use them with the other words from previous posts (since Tuesday) to make up the sentence.  See Tuesdays post for the details and all the requirements.  Good luck all....surprises could be awaiting you

Todays card is a bit over the top with bling for me, but it is for a little one year old and I think she will like it.  Do you remember me telling you about my neighbours daughter who was coming around to learn card making?  Well Seren is her baby sister and she is one today.   I just hope she likes the card.  Here it is for your observation:-

I used my grand entrant circular nesties for the card base using soft baby pink card and matts/layers in ivory linen card.  The papers used here I have had in my Feminine Paper box for a couple of years and as I had already used them they are without names, so I am unable to tell you the manufacturer.
The image is a freebie from a magazine, it is part of the Daisy and Dandelion set from Do win Crafts.

 I decorated the inside to coordinate and shaped the writing area into a pennant to correspond with the front.   I added some white glitter letters to spell out Serens name and a silver number peeloff for her age.  I am not a great fan of peeloffs as you know,  but they can be a real asset for something like this.

I didn't put as much work into this card as I usually do with all my other cards but I didn't entrant think it was needed for a baby's card.  I do hope you like it though.
I'm sorry I didn't get to the blogs last night, but I promise I will be by this evening when I do the Extra Candy post for the Challenge.  Which reminds me, thank you all for the wonderful entries so for the Challenge, your creations are stunning and so varied.
Well I am off to bed now for a couple of hours and then later Serens eldest sister Ellie, is back to do some card making with me.   So have a wonderful day today what ever you are up to and thank you so much for your visit, it means the world to me.
 Regards Linda xx
