90th


There was me thinking it the first Saturday of May luckily I remembered it the last day of April before posting next weeks card. Thankfully I still have a Penny Black card to post possibly my favourite flower stamp which I alway seem to paper-pieced.

The papers are some old Kaiser ones and I used my favourite things like ribbon and lace, not forgetting the fabulous Spellbinders Floral Oval but before I take out the die I draw round the inside and cut it out.

There is a bit of a error in the sentiment that I saw before sticking the envelope down and added th but didn't have time to photo it again. The Happy Birthday and numbers are Simon Says Stamp dies.

The centre of the flowers are tiny beads that I buy on e-bay but they're for nail decoration but are very similar to the Accent Beads you used to be able to buy. A few pearls on the corners of the rose paper and my job is done.

The card was duly hand-delivered at the surprise party for my Auntie Jane who was married to my Mum's brother.

This is my all time favourite PB stamp too and I love this card and your choice of colours. 2008 and has stood the test of time better than any, I think.
