65th birthday

8" square

I had two commissions recently, one for the end of May and the other for August. I thought I'd get started, but have done the wrong one first.
So, I am well ahead!! this is not wanted until August.

A couple of close-up's.

The pretty lace and velvet ribbon is from my local haberdashers. The heart with 65 on was cut by hand and made sparkley with glitterey stuff. The two bows are made from the wrapping on some fruit and the Flora Doodles and pearls from Joanna Sheen

Oh, I do wish I could take a better pic. Lately they are either skew-wiff or out of focus. Sometimes, both together, arrrggghhh!!

Thanks for visiting and for any comments you are kind enough to leave.
