Stamp Something Challenge: My first commissioned card

Click to enlarge image ... Okay, so it was only my mum who asked me to make a card for her friend's birthday (LOL), but technically this was my very first "made to order" creation! I really wanted to go for a different colour as all my fave cards seem to be a combo of pink/brown, and I'm really pleased with the result. I'm going to enter it into this week's Stamp Something challenge, which is to make something with the theme of birthdays.

Catch ya later!
