For my Daughter #1

******************
8" square

This is a very rushed make.
My lovely Son in Law asked GD to ask me to to make a card for her Mum's birthday, which was yesterday. She forgot and told me the  night before!

Papers - Pressed in time - Raspberry Road
Net and crinoline flower with and old clip on earring in the centre
Lace
Seam binding ribbon
Flat back pearls and pearl heart




The gem in the centre  looks blue in the pic but is clear IRL



The ribbon treatment top left is to disguise the fact that I stuck the panels on skewy :(



I used the same paper as the main on the front for the inside panels




Challenges
A Gem of a Challenge #40 - sketch
Aud Sentiments  -  happy
Incy Wincy #134 - birthday
Creatalicious #31 - lace
DYSU #59 - layers
OSAAT #101 - digi or no digi


Thank you for stopping by - your comments are very much appreciated
Cheers me dears
