A Vintage Beauty.....

Tomorrow is my friends birthday and she will be 70 - she'd kill me if she knew I'd told you that! She honestly looks no older than 50 and is as fit as a fiddle and today she has gone home to Ireland to spend her birthday and Christmas with her family so I am safe to blog this card, lol!!

I used one of the line drawings from Scribble and Scrap - I think they are so lovely. I coloured her with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and used some vintagey background paper I got from Jak Heath quite some time ago.
I added some lace, flowers, pearls and bling. The lovely bunting die cut is from Joanna Sheen and I love it, I cut it twice once in glitter card then one in pearlised paper, it gives a lovely effect. I used some flourish die cuts in glitter card and the sentiment came free with a mag last week!

Isn't she lovely!

I would like to enter this into the Scribble and Scrap challenge and Through the Craftroom Door
