Birthday Wishes

This is a card I have made using a Sweet Pea Stamps digital image by Meredith Dillman called "Fanciful Notions".  This is a perfect image for any lady but is also especially perfect for someone who likes sewing.  I have coloured the image with Promarkers, cut around the edge and then edged around with a Blue Pearl Promarker as I hate to see white edges around images.  The backing papers are from Papermania and called Happy Days which I was lucky enough to get in some blog candy that I won.  The card has been finished off with some lace, some handmade bobbins with twine wound around them, decorative pin, Craftwork Cards sentiments and lots and lots of pearls.
