Happy Birthday Dulcie

I have had quite a lot of orders lately and this one is rather special as it's for a lady called Dulcie who will be celebrating her 100th Birthday.


I was a bit out of my comfort zone here but Pauline helped out with a fabulous design which I...ahem...borrowed!! The pretty image was from the latest Crafters Inspiration Magazine  CD rom and after a rummage I found Nitwits Always and Forever was an almost perfect colour match. I dusted off a really old stamp set for Dulcie and 100 and distressed all the edges with Walnut Stain. To finish off I used some seam binding and complimentary pearls, ooh and a doily die cut out of vellum and then aged. It won't match the one from HRH but I hope she likes it!!

Some challenges

Sweet Stampin - Vintage/Shabby Chic
Fab 'n' Funky #288 - Buttons and/or bows
Creative Moments #85 - Anything Goes
Crafty Boots challenge - Ribbon or lace

Have a good week whatever you are up to xx

A very special card for a very special lady Sarah. I was asked to do one for the same age a while back and the lady was most thrilled at having her name on the card.

Hi Sarah,
what a very beautiful card for a simply super Birthday.
Love your fab design, and all the wonderful flowers on it.
I must admit the Queens one is not a patch on yours, but it's the thought of getting one from her I suppose.
My lady also got a telegram from the work and pensions department too.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Debbie said...

Really pretty card dearie. Love all the colours and the layers and bunting are fantastic. Thanks for your lovely comment. Hugs xxxx

MaryH said...

What a wonderful image, and perfectly paired (as always) with the lovely & delicate rose pattern. Like the way you've done the layering, and not sure if the little fluffy piece top right, is a partial doily or cloud, but that is a nice subtle touch with these papers. Delightful banner and rose, and just so feminine & pretty. Love anything roses, and this fits the bill. Stay dry, and cozy...hope Surprise likes rainy rides!!! TFS & Hugs

Kat W said...
