For my Favourite Second Cousin

Hi! I made this card for my lovely and very talented cuz (actually second cousin, after a bit of Googling). Inside, I wrote 'For my favourite second cousin', and then I worried that she'd mis-read it as second favourite cousin, as she is dyslexic and things get muddled up for her. So I added '- not to be confused with second favourite cousin!'. I think I over-think things. But anyway, she's lovely, and she makes beautiful jewellery.

I created the background with ink dusters, then stamped the images. I coloured the foxgloves with inks and a water brush, and then punched some tiny flowers from black card, and added gems to the centres.

Ingredients:
Lavinia Stamps: 'Fox 1', 'Lilly', 'Dandelions 2', 'Leaf Trail', 'Birds'
