Molly the Optimist

Hello lovely peeps, hope you are well.

I'm feeling old  ;D


Today's card is for my beautiful, clever and charming niece who will be 18 at the weekend.

The stamp is called 'Opal the Optimist', from Stamping Bella. There is a lovely sentiment with it which I have put on the inside of the card:-

'May your glass always be half full'

I hasten to add that this is a wish that her future will be full of happy & wonderful things, as opposed to suggesting she is going to be an alcoholic :)

I have coloured Opal/Molly in with my Graph'It markers:-


The '18' stamp is by Woodware and I have paper pieced it with Romance and Roses papers from Nitwit. The flowers in the corner are from the same 'kit'.

For the layout I've used a sketch from the current challenge at Creative Inspirations
and also I've taken inspiration for the wording from DT Kat's gorgeous card.
