Shabby Chic - well my attempt at it!

I was asked to my a 65th Birthday card without the number's on it for a lady who is having a Vintage surprise party this weekend - her husband gave me a evening to put something together! So this is what I came up with. He was really pleased and loved the fact I had put a bird on it as that's also part of the theme (yes we have been living this party for the last 2 months at work and I do listen lol!)

He was really happy with it and I hope she is too!

Its a Dreamees Day!

Well thank goodness its the weekend tomorrow, its kind of been a long week here and with not a lot of crafting time! Well last night I decided to have a little play and came across this dramatic backing paper/card. so I thought I would try and make a dramatic card lol! So out came my favourite sentiments from Dreamees that you can find HERE they are called Recipe Stamp along with my Essential Flowers stamps that you can fine HERE oh not forgetting the gorgeous Butterfly that you can find HERE. I have used ribbons, papers and gems and doily all from my stash and this is how the card turned out!
I think its really pretty and a bit dramatic!

I'd love to hear what you think about it :o)
