Forgotten birthday

Hi Everyone, hope the sun has shone on you today.

My card today is one that I made for a work colleague who's birthday I forgot being off work with my sciatica.  (At least it's a lot better now and I'm taking the last of my leave, ready to go back in a couple of weeks.)  I used this fun image, I've used it a few times, from Squigglefly, as I thought she looked a bit lot like me LOL. I used DP's by Pink Petticoat, buttons and flower by Papermania and ribbon from stash. The twine was sent to me by a lovely blog friend, thank you, I love them. I followed the Crafts4Eternity sketch.  I printed and layered the papers and 3D'd the image and the sentiment.














I'll enter the following challenges

  1. oh Faith this is really cute! I love the paper piecing on the dress, and the different colored buttons. I really like the angled papers behind the image, and the ribbon flower you made behind your other flower is especially nice all tied up with twine! I'm so glad you played in Squigglefly's challenge this week, and I'm REALLY glad that your back is feeling better!

  6. Very cute!!! Love her dress. If I'm not mistaken, I recognize the image as one by Marlooney who used to have the blog Disguised as a Grownup. I know they sell a few of her images through Squiggefly, but I sure miss her blog posts. Great card, and glad to hear you are feeling better!
