Happy Birthday Row!
This is a card for a great friend of mine who celebrates her birthday on 4th October.
I just wanted to have a bit of a go at vintage, so here it is...
I started off with a pearlescent brown card blank and added a background paper and the leaf images which I downloaded from http://digital-doodling.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/freebies-autumn.html, brilliant papers, thank you "Digital Doodling"!
I added a gold border with a Kanban (TM) border from the CD "The Seasons Collection".
I grunged up a paper doily by adding some Tim Holtz (TM) distress inks.
The image is a Lili of the Valley (TM) (There's a surprise!) which a coloured in using Letraset Pro Markers (TM).
The sentiment is also a LOTV stamp and I circled with a gel pen the number "4".
I added a "Made with Love" charm in the top corner which a added a ribbon to.
To finish I did a bit of sewing to add interest to the edge of the card.
