Lillie's1st Birthday Card!

Hello everyone, blogging today a card which is for our granddaughter, Lillie-May who is 1-years old this weekend.  I cannot believe she is 12-months old already - she is such a little joy - always smiling and it's lovely to see her personality emerging.  Anyway seen as she will not be aware of Nannie and Grandad's card I have created this card with her mum in mind who likes "pretty feminine" things......


The card is 8x8 in size and has been made using some very old K&Co paper.  Machine stitching has been added and edged inked with distress ink, Tumbleglass.  The main image "little darling" is from Graphic 45 and is mounted onto greyboard for depth.


The butterflies from Eline Huis of Marianne Design have each been stamped twice in distress inks Faded Jeans and layered with pearls added.  The sentiments have been stamped in sepia Versafine and the pennant has been stamped in the Faded Jeans and is a free stamp from Craft Stamper. Punched hearts have been added as has a hand drawn heart with a chipboard "1" which has been sanded and coloured with distress inks.

Silk-flowers-vintage-(JU0855) and paper-roses-vintage-roses from Marianne Design complete the card.  I added a touch of Faded Jeans to the cream paper roses to co-ordinate.


I would like to enter Lillie's card into the following challenges:-

It's all about the Vintage - "Love"

Sentimental Sundays - "Banners / Pennants"

That Craft Place - "Vintage"

A long weekend to look forward to in the UK ....I don't even care if the sun doesn't come out.  Suzanne ~x~

Hi. Just saw this card in Sentimental Sundays' Banner challenge. I also entered and I like to see what others have done. Your card was the one that caught my eye right away. Probably cause it's the style I love. Your card is so endearing! The image is precious and you embellished it beautifully. What mom wouldn't love it?
