For the wife of my DIL's boss.
The lucky birthday girl is off to New York with a friend in September - courtesy of her husband :-)
I remembered having this beautiful image of an ad for a NY clothes store - just perfect for this card.
Isn't she lovely, although looking rather sad methinks.
I've made the embellies to compliment the image. As the lovely lady is wearing a BIG flowery hat I made this hat pin and my first 'crinoline' flower - dyed with tattered rose DI - I'm so proud of it LOL.
I just love the crinoline flowers made by Linda Coughlin and followed her tutorial here - although as I don't have any of the right size/shape dies I cut my own shapes.
It is laying on two 5cm squares of muslin well fringed around the edges :-)
Other stuff -
Papers from my leftovers/scrap box.
Handmade sentiment, distress inked with TH vintage photo
Circle embossed with CB texture folder which also has the vintage photo ink treatment
Doily - difficult though it was, I managed to leave this unadulterated
A tiny bit of sparkle added to the sentiment circle and the brad.
Thank you for stopping by today
Cheers me dears
