May all your wishes come true

It is birthday season for family and friends at the moment so there is no shortage of cards to make for people.  I have spent the last two nights (and the night before that pondering lol) creating a birthday card for my sister.  I decided I wanted a change from the image ones and didn't think they were really her so this is what I came up with.
Papers are from a MME 'Lost & Found' 6x6 pad. 

 Roses, lace & Ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts

 Below I included some memorabilia trinkets - an elephant earring (I have lost the other one and the recipient has an elephant collection), a little black cat (she has a black cat) and a guitar - well that is another story.

 The doilies are from an old tablecloth that had a trim of hand crocheted motifs.  The finish on the upper dress form is liquid pearls swirled around. 

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.  It is not likely that I will be back here before the weekend so have a good one.

Until next time .....
