30th Birthday


Mojo Monday #200 - this is based on the current sketch
Ruby's Rainbow #8 - vintage
CYP #67 - text it!
Flutter by Wednesday #163 - open
Allsorts. #112 - free and easy
ABC - Y is for yesterday
Crafts & Me #44  - add a flower
HLSC #31 - make your own embellies - crochet flowers

For our niece will be celebrating her 30th next Friday.

I have not done any crochet for years so am quite pleased how these turned out - there are a few mistakes but I hope no one notices, lol.
I made them for a challenge but by the time I had made them AND made the card the challenge had ended :-(
I made the circle sentiment in Publisher - I surprised myself that I remembered how to do it. It has been liberally distressed with TH vintage photo distress ink - the most used of the two TH distress ink pads I posses.

Since taking the pic I added pearls to the bottom RH to match the top left

Thought I'd add a pic of the box. Very plain - distressed doily - computer generated greeting with a gem - seam ribbon bow and a WO rose

Other ingredients -
Purple fibre 'stuff'
Gorgeous lace from Linda, Funkie Junkie
Seam binding ribbon
Pearl buttons
Butterflies from goody bag win
Flat back pearls
Glittery flourish

Thank you for stopping by :-)
Cheers me dears

This is just fabulous, Irene! The vintage picture of the little girl is just as sweet as can be and I just love all the yummy shabby, vintage style embellishments. Your crocheted flowers turned out sensational - LOVE those. Thanks so much for being a regular with our Sunday Share linky party at Frilly and Funkie.
