Happy Birthday Karen.....

Its my friend Karen's birthday today 'Happy Birthday Karen'  and as you can see from the card it is one of those BIG birthday's....hope Karen wont mine me showing her age...but age is only a number and you are as old as you feel.
The stamp is one from Butterfly Kisses, I've paper pieced the image using papers from Paperpania 'Rose Garden' pad and have also used this for the background of my card. Lace is from my stash, dots embossing folder and the ribbon is vintage seem binding..just finished off the card with a few pearls...


Not sure what the weather is going to today but at the moment its dry and about time to I dont like webbed feet!!!
Have good day whatever you do.

Lovely card Anne, I love this stamp, haven't used mine yet, I must admit I do like to paper piece as my colouring in isn't too good, yet :)

Gorgeous card Anne, love the image and the paper piecing. Beautiful BP too! I bet it's strategically placed on the mantelpiece with another card just obscuring that important number!!!
