Shabby 21st

Hello fellow bloggers and I hope today finds you well, if not, then I wish you better days. 
We are all recovering from a nasty lurgy, flu like symptoms with a persistent cough. Hubby was so bad that he had to take three days off of work which is unheard of and even visited the GP. Still, we are over the worse...fingers crossed. 

Our eldest's Girlfriend will be celebrating her 21st in a few days so I am sharing the card that I made for her. My offspring are far too cool to take any notice of what I do here, so there is little chance of her seeing this before the event, so here it is!!


You may be forgiven for thinking that I have been whisked away by aliens...lol...but yes 'tis me...having another go at Shabby Chic with the help of a sketch that I hastily drew after seeing a similar card, somewhere. Don't ask why I didn't "pin" it, I have no idea!!

The pretty spot paper is from First Edition Floral Pavilion. Tumbled Glass DI was just the right shade to distress the edges and, as you can see, my teeny weeny sewing machine was used too. All the flowers were from WOC except the stalky and stringy stuff (!!) which came from Anna Marie Designs. The curves were courtesy of my SB edge dies, the little branches from Noor UK and the pearls and bird were from my stash. The flowers were stickled but, as usual, it doesn't show on the snap.

I am proud to be sharing here...

  16. Hi Sarah, this is an amazing card - everything about looks absolutely perfect - I love the colour scheme you have used and your pretty die cuts and flower clusters are exquisite - your son's girlfriend will be thrilled with this (My son told me that his girlfriend has all the cards I have made for her on a shelf in her room - bless - I only have boys (who are pleased at time I give them a card but it passes)! so I am quite touched by that!.

  36. It is stunning! Quite different from the lovely style I expect to see here but you've proved that you are a master of the layers & chic! Love all the details, the soft colors, and it's a very special card to celebrate a milestone birthday. She should just simply love this, and that you created this beauty just for her. Great work, and I LOVE it! TFS & Happy Sunday.
