Card Recipe:
Image - Hannah at a Fence by Sandra Hammer

Paper - K and Co Julianne
Doily Die - French Pastry by Cheery Lynn Designs
Roses - Wild Orchid Crafts
Lace - Offray
Pearls - Recollections
Sentiment - Printed

Remember you can use the sketch or the optional technique or both!

This gorgeous image of Hannah had me envisioning her looking longingly and thinking about a special someone and so that's why I thought it was perfect for a birthday card for a very special someone. I paper pieced the dress with a very subtle patterned paper and added highlights with my Copic Markers.
The vintage style lace was a final touch along with the pearls on the die cut doily.
I hope you like her and everyone needs Birthday Cards so our challenge this week is perfect for increasing that stash.
Please come along and join in with us at The Pixie Cottage!
