Irene’s Birthday Card


Have to say a huge thanks to JOAN… big hugs sweetie… for noticing that I had won a top 3 blinkie for challenge #14 on KL Stampin N Scrappin. and another hug for the DT’s who picked my card x x x….. I just love the flashing blinkie…. can feel another comment coming from my son JP… (not justice of the peace… John-Paul).

Bit hectic this week… (went to Waterford hospital and the pins are not coming out of my finger for another 6 weeks).

Anyway onto today’s card, it is for IRENE… happy birthday honey bunny and also happy anniversary for the next day…. picked vintage because I know she really wants to get into the distressing scene.

Stamped all over the card with a script stamp and inked the edges. Hand stitched the lace onto the image and also did a running stitch around the edge. Image is from one of Joanna Sheene’s CD’s. Just hope she likes it and the sentiment which I printed onto a nestie label and then inked the edges to match the card..

Made the flower from a retro punch, added the ribbon and lace and also inked the edges of the fringe.

PaperPlay Challenge – Birthday for Someone Special is just sooo perfect for this card.

Creative Inspirations have a challenge for…. Anyone for Leftovers? This is so right as everything came from my bit box of scraps and odds and ends.
