Freya's Birthday Card

As promised earlier here is the card I made for my daughter Freya's 14th Birthday. Its an easel card using a Lili of the Valley image. The papers I have used are from Nitwit Collections.

I have used my Martha Stewart lace doily border punch and a Marianne Creatables circle die. Th sentiment has been stamped using a Lili of the Valley clear stamp which I have cut cut with my circle nesties and matted onto a scalloped circle cut using my nesties.

The beautiful roses are from my craft stash and the leaves/branches have been cut using a punch.
I bought the hat and handbag charms from ebay and threaded them onto some fireline with beads to match the card and stuck on with Pinflair.

She loved it, I have also made matching box which I shall try and post later.
