Cameo Silhouette Birthday

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  A quick post from me tonight as it is getting late.  I really must try and make time to do my posts earlier in the day lol.

Todays card is one I made for my nephews to give to their auntie for her birthday.


The image, papers and sentiment are from a very old copy of Making Cards (must be at least two years old).  I thought it was about time I started to use them.  I used gold mirror card for all the matting.  As it felt quite vintage I added some lace across the centre.  The paper flowers and pearls are from The Hobby House.  The final touch was a couple of metal flowers and some buttons from my stash.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  Off now to do a bit of commenting before bed.
