Vintage Birthday


I am still finding it hard to get back to cardmaking but I found this lovely lady and think she is perfect to go with these new  papers I bought on Saturday.

Challenges I'd like to enter

Kaboodle Doodles #43 - Make it Vintage
Lexi's Creations #26 - Anything goes
One Stop Craft Challenge #104 - Anything goes and blog hop

I had to join 2 together as the card blank is 8x6 and the papers are 6x6

The two ovals are matted on to my good old favourite silver mirri card and the one with the image fixed with foam pads.

Papers - K&Co
Flower - made from a truffle wrapper
Seam binding ribbon - My Wedding Party
MS border punch 
Sentiment - computer generated

Thank you for stopping by and if you have time to leave a comment you'll make my day :-)
