Carol's Birthday


I made this card for one of my friends I met through blogging, Carol, and was delighted when she and her hubby moved to Suffolk last year. I know this is her favourite colour and she likes shabby chic.
Sentiment - LOTV
Die - Lawn Fawn stitched square
Papers - Echo Park 
Burlap with lace - Ebay
Flowers - Hobbycraft
Gauze and enamel dots

Challenges
Noor! Design UK flowers and lace 

Exciting day today as we are going to pick up our new car. Well new to us, but only 4 years old, the newest car we have ever had.  Hubby is very excited.

Check out my candy page.

I hope you are pleased with your new car, my hubby is waiting to hear when his will be delivered - I don't think it will be ready until October though as they are still building it!

Hi Marianne, this is a beautiful card. The big sentiment is really effective and you have added perfect details. I love the burlap and the lace which add really shabby chic texture.
