Textured Birthdays


Id like to share with you a birthday card I made at the weekend using one of my crocheted flowers.  I made several last year and they've sat looking at me on my desk ever since - too scared to use them for some reason!  They are quite 'in your face' due to their size but I bit the bullet and went for it!

Ive used some Papermania papers that Ive had for simply ages, a little dab of DI, a stitched seam or two, a little border punch, a silky smooth satin ribbon bow and of course my cotton flower!  The super sweet image is a new one from Lili of the Valley.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Winter Wonderland - Birthday Wishes
ABC Challenges - 'H' Happy Birthday

Thanks for your visit,
Keryn x

Wow this is gorgeous honey! we must be crafting along the same lines my friend as I am making a card with the new LOTV stamp you got me for Christmas. I had to get some more U-Mount which I finally put on last night and stamped out ample images to play with. Those crochet flowers are beautiful and again i'm lucky to have some that you made me. Looks beautiful on your card darlin. I love those paper's too that you have used. Big big hugs Clare xxx

Hi Keryn

Your card is gorgeous as is your beautiful crochet flower. Super neat stitching and such beautiful papers.

I borrowed two books from my sister at Christmas that feature crochet and knitted flowers .. .. like I have time at the moment to experiment LOL!!

Can't wait to see some more of your flowers.

Love Jules xx
