Celebrate in Style

Good morning all.

We had a beautiful day yesterday, I hope you did too.

It's my sister in laws birthday today and this is the card I made her.


Background created using Sparkle Medium and a stencil from Imagination Crafts, both part of my recent candy win. Stamps and backing paper were magazine freebies. I've paper pieced all the stamps using a coordinating paper from the pad. Ribbon and yarn are from Inkylicious; lace and charm are from my stash.


Challenges entered:
Paper Pretties - try a new technique (stencilling)
Inky Impressions - charm
Divas by Design - sparkle
Baffies Kreativladen - anything goes
It's all about Vintage - use lace
Crafts 4 Eternity - texture

Ecleptic Ellapu - vintage

The Cheerful Stamp Pad - anything goes
Craft room Challenge - 20th Century...inspired by early 1900's elegance
