Hello everyone, hope you had a fabulous weekend.
It was Thanksgiving weekend for us in Canada - time spent with family is always the best.
Unfortunately I did not get to make a card for World Card Making Day on Saturday
.....too busy in the kitchen :)

Today, I thought I would share with you a card I made for my cousin's birthday.
She's on my "most favourite people list" so I wanted something special for her.
...warning - heavy photo post.

The lush papers and image are Graphic 45, A Ladies Diary
Flower on the card is from Wild Orchid Crafts.  
Ribbon from Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  
 Spellbinders Antique Frame & Accents Die
TH Tattered Rose distressed ink.

I will be entering the following challenges:

In the Pink  - Pink plus one
Pile it on Challenge #41 - Vintage or Shabby Chic

Thanks for stopping by and your comments are always appreciated.
Hugs, Pat K.x
