Daughters Birthday Card

Hi again folks, I said I would be back today and here I am with the Birthday cards I've
created for my Daughter (Janie) who will be celebrating on Thursday the 1st April. She loves vintage style cards, but not the old fashioned images, so I've done my best to give this a vintage feel with a modern twist. I think she will like it. The papers were just plain brown and white and I used the same colour of ProMarker as Willows coat to colour in the inside of the flowers.
I think it worked quite well.

I made up the little bouquet of flowers into a spray from odd pieces of flowers, petals and pearls and used stickles to give a bit of glitter. I think it's lovely. Pearls and the lovely pleated chocolate ribbon just finishes the whole thing off. The sentiment I created on my computer.

Thanks for visiting, hope you come back and see me soon.

Hugs Suzi xx

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

1. Stamptacular Sunday Challenge: This week the theme is Flowers and I must say I am so glad that they are now allowing the combining of challenges. Do pop over and have a look at the new items they are introducing into the blog. Very exciting stuff indeed.

2. One Stitch at a Time Challenge: This week the theme is Vintage and stitchy are also having an Easter Egg hunt. Which I am going to try and join in if time permits. Oops!! looks like I was too late for this challenge. !!!

3. Prairie Fairy Friday Challenge: This week the theme is to make an Easel Card. I was very fortunate to be in the top spot last week and will be joining Roberta and the wonderful DT this week as a Guest Designer. How exciting is that. I've already made my card, but you will have to wait until Friday.
