Happy Birthday to Jeni from me....

Hi Susan here....

This is a very special blog post for me, it is my daughter Jeni's birthday today and I wanted to wish her a beautiful Birthday with lots of laughs and memories.

This is the card I made just for her....

This is my favourite type of card to make I think they are so dramatic and I know that Jeni loves them too.

My backing papers are from my stash, I used them because they are Jeni's favourite colours, they are very 'arty' and remind me of an old masters painting.
All the beautiful swirls are from dies, I have inked them using similar colours to my backing paper.
The ribbon, lace and pearls as usual are from our local market.
The gorgeous butterfly in the background is a die, I have again used inks to colour it and attached pearls all over.

This is to show you the hidden tag, where my sentiment to Jeni has been written.

One of my favourite stamped images from Lili of the Valley, both my daughters used to dress up like this when they were little and every time I look at this image it brings a smile on my face when I remember them as little girls.  I have used promarkers to colour the image.

This flower I made just for Jeni because I know she likes them, the smaller roses are from Hobby Craft.

This gorgeous sentiment and frame are from Raindrop Echo Designs, I have colour the frame with inks and added glitter for a little bit of sparkle.

I hope you liked my card, and I hope you do too Jeni!!


Thank you for looking, and for all your wonderful comments
Love and hugs
