For my card this week I have used the Coctail Emily stamp that you actually can win! How cool is that! She is a cutie!  This one really got me dreaming about umbrelladrinks under palmtrees....

I have colored her with my Derwent Inktense color pencils and layerd the image upon some lace. 

I added some heartshaped buttons.

And a little pink flower.

Today, may 17th is the Nasjonal day of Norway. I will not do a lot of celebrating this your, but I have to do some - so here it is:

Happy Birthday Norway!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

This is gorgeous card - so bright and cheerful and warm (we are cold here today, winter has started early, I am sure). That pink flower is fabulous and the design paper and lace are just so pretty.
