Someone amazing is having a birthday today, so I made this a little canvas-inspired creation to honour her special day:

Some of the Design Dollies are also helping to celebrate ;)

I do have a confession to make... I made a birthday card (I haven't shared it online, so there's NO peeking!) and I mailed it on the weekend, but I'm pretty sure it won't arrive in time. SORRY.  And this little project didn't make it into the package, so I'll have to send it later ;)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, gorgeous girl x

I'm sharing my project at:
# Getting Cricky ~ Vintage Appeal
# Scrap Fit ~ Around the house
I used - corrugated cardboard packaging, paper doiley, kitchen twine
# Sugar Creek Hollow ~ paper flowers, lace and bling
I used - Green Tara paper flowers, lace paper doiley, Kaisercraft rhinestone and glittered buttons
# Paper Sundaes ~ Let's get sentimental
I used - AdornIt alpha stickers, Basic Grey white chocolate chipboard alphas

I also used: Kaisercraft paint, 'Tiny Bubbles Tia' from Some Odd Girl


  1. Really cute, I love the corrugated cardboard, and Tia looks great!

  2. This card is so pretty, love how you did the paper. Great job on the vintage look. Good Luck!
