New Beginnings

Good morning all.
My Aunt will be 90 on Friday so the beginning of a new decade for her. She still has all her marbles but unfortunately no short term memory so has been in a nursing home for some years. Hopefully I'll be going down to see her on Saturday, weather permitting!
This is the card I made for my Mum to give her.


Using a gorgeous decoupage from Faerie Poppets. Dies are all from Spellbinders; embossing folder from Couture Creations; punch from Martha Stewart; ribbon and pearls from my stash and sentiments are computer generated.

Joanna Sheen - new beginnings
Dream Valley Challenges - girls, girls, girls
Eclectic Ellapu - special birthday
Cards 4 Eternity - punch it
Totally Papercrafts - it's embossing time
ABC Challenges - birthday cards
Card Mania - girly

  5. Good snowy afternoon Carol,

    Love everything about this it is so beautifully delicate .
    Knee deep in the white stuff, trapped at the moment so plenty time for crafting but really can't be bothered. Sitting in front if a roaring fire. Only thing that makes you sleepy....................what an excuse for laziness.
    Keep warm and keep crafing!!!
