 Hello everyone,

My friend Beryl had a Birthday not long ago and this was the vintage style card I made for her as she loves vintage...

It was good to get my flowers out again, paint them with gesso, and add them to a die cut floral piece..

I enjoyed painting over the roses on the ladies hat to simmer the colour down and added  one of my new gold Bees from a nail art place.. 

Hand painted some leaves with my water colour paints,
then die cut them out, enjoyed that to..

A side view of the card which was hand delivered as she lives around the corner from me..

The other side..still waiting on my order from MFT of black and white stripe papers, I'm getting low..

And another close up ..

So there we go, Beryl loved her card..good old Beryl, in fact I used to look after her, she was one of my clients and we kept in touch.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I will see you tomorrow..
