Happy Birthday Rach!

Today is my niece's 15th birthday, and we are having a little family do, although it's without Lucy as she's at Brownie camp.

I'm so glad we can do it as it was a close call at the beginning of the year for her. I don't like to think back to those early weeks too much as it was pretty awful, but thank goodness they are now a memory.

Rach is now back to her beautiful self, although she still has a way to go to silence the anorexia completely. I think I may offer to eat her slice of birthday cake though!!! Cake is still difficult for her, but we make a joke about things like that now.

So here's the card and gift wallet I made for her:

I bought the Stampotique stamp especially for her birthday as it is so her; quirky and feminine grungey. The paper is a very old Heidi Grace one that is perfect as she wears a lot of purple and black. I added a bit of colour to the stamp with copics.

The card is for this week's challenge on ~{Bubbly Scrumptious Challenge Blog}~ which is spotty and dotty, and uses last week's sketch from 2Sketches4you.
