Nanna's Birthday card

Hi, me again lol, I have been one busy crafter lately, I'm addicted!!! My Mother-in-law's Birthday is coming up next weekend so instead of waiting until the last minute I thought I'd enjoy it whilst incorporating a few challenge criteria along the way. This is one of my new favourite digi stamps, I just won my choice of 4 Di's Digis from a recent My Mum's Craft Shop challenge, was so excited and it was impossible to just choose 4, I bought 2 as well lol!!

FWAB used:
Assorted coloured Pearls
