You've got mail for your birthday

This is for Papertake 65:

Colours are for Cards and things 109:

The background spotted paper is K & Co hopscotch and the post card/script paper is from the Bitty scrap pad 'heritage post'. Th stamps are all Papermania Urban stamps simply inked with memento rich cocoa. The edges of the cream card were distressed with spiced marmalade DI.

This is also for:

Inspiration Avenue: you've got mail
Phindy's Friday 95: distressing
Stamptacular 154: text me
Paper pretties 195: use your favourite stamp set to create your card - I've only had this PM Urban set for a little while, but it's fast become a favourite - so versatile with all the separate stamps that co-ordinate together
Stamp, scrap & doodle: use your stash (I've had the papers for ages)
One crazy stamper March: birthday wishes
Aud sentiments 49: happy birthday
Sarah Hurley 61: birthday celebrations
