 Hello everyone,

Welcome to a new week and new challenge over at Little Red Wagon  where our lovely Kate is hostess and her theme is.."Women - Feminine Creations " anything you want to do, any project at all.

I started in my scrap bin, like I do almost every time,
 as I always have a pile in a basket close by..

Pink spot tissue paper, a picture off the net..

and black and kraft wrapping paper I saved from my birthday,
my gifts were wrapped in it..

I had no idea where I was going with the design,
 just started panels and things, this was a birthday card for my friend Beryl..

This rose was on a sheet of paper and I fussy cut it out, not hard.
I added vintage lace down both sides of the pink tissue panel..

Music paper inside and a pocket,,

One of the envelopes I made ages ago and added her birthday wishes tag inside..

Glued those in place and added Bee stamps,
 enlarged on the computer to make sheets and cut into pockets..
( Beryl likes to be called Nana Bee and loves Bees )

The lady in place but is hidden by the flap above her
when card is closed..

added ribbons and postage stamps ( craft ones )


a card that opens three times to get to the end..

So come on over and play HERE

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..
