Just Add Ink - Swallowtail

 Just Add Ink 239

Happy (Belated) Birthday
This time of year brings seems to bring lots of birthdays and if you are a friend or family member you would know that I am terrible at getting birthday cards to people on time - if at all! I KNOW right, that is so bad, I make cards for a living!

So this card is no different, it's late. The lovely recipient of this card has been waiting since September! It's for my husbands Aunty who thankfully knows what I'm like and loves me anyway...well I hope she does!? Maybe I could say that this is really early for next year?

This week over at Just Add Ink, it's a colour challenge.

I decided to use the Swallowtail stamp, I haven't pulled this out in a long time, but I love it in this brown. The background is gold embossed, not sure if shows up very well in the picture, however it looks lovely in 'real life' - you'll just have to trust me! 

Be sure to pop over to see all the other talented Design Team Members and we would love it if you also played along....nudge nudge, wink, wink! 

Thanks for stopping by,

Below is a list of some of the items I used for this card. If you reside in Australia and would like to purchase any of the items, please click on the image and you will be directed to my online store.


  1. Love how you have paired the swallowtail and the lace in the same brown with the tiniest hint of lost lagoon peeping out from under the tag.

  2. This is breathtakingly beautiful, Lou! I really love how you've used the challenge colours, and all the delicate details are gorgeous; well worth the wait! :)
