89th Birthday

It's my Aunt's 89th birthday later this week so thought I'd better get the card made ready to post. I decided to do some decoupage so had a rummage through some of my neglected stash and found this lovely bunch of flowers. I've used a great sketch designed by Pauline for Willow Sketchie.


Another rummage brought up some Anna Griffin paper scraps which I've matted and layered onto red stardream. Card is finished with a ribbon, button, twine and a sentiment.
Inside is decorated to match.

Willow Sketchie - followed sketch
Party Time Tuesday - happy birthday
Stamp n Doodle - birthdays
