Birthday Girl

Happy Monday everyone - I am celebreating as I am on holiday this week. Yay.
Here's a birthday card I made recently, using some cute alphas and gorgeous patterned paper.  
Birthday Girl
I always fail miserably at vintage, however hard I try - but this is my effort. :)
Have a fun day.

Hi Lucy...Not as grungey as some but it certainly has that vintage feel! I am 'pants' at vintage and distressed but I am very keen to get better and you have inspired me to use kraft card a lot more.
I am going to practice doing some flowers with text paper as when I come onto your blog I see that beautiful peach layered up flower!
Just gorgeous!!!
