Vintage BD Card

My husband's niece is having a 65th birthday party. Unfortunately, she lives 400 miles away and since I work full time, we are unable to go.

So, I made her a special birthday card. This is a picture I had of her when she was 18 months old. They were on the ranch and my hubby says they had just gathered the eggs from the chickens when she toddled over and picked up an egg. She gently put it back a while later.

I scanned the picture and printed it in Sepia tones on Vanilla Cardstock and stitched around the picture and the rest of the card. My sewing machine is over 28 years old and is on it's last legs I think. My sewing is limited to repairing things and since I don't sew very often I have never replaced it. Maybe a little Janome sewing machine for cardmaking only, is in my future? LOL!

I used my new Martha Stewart Scallop edge punch that my friend gave me the other day, dewdrops, green satin ribbon and some vanilla and gold ribbon I've had for a long time. The DP paper is a scan of a paper storage box I have. TFL!

Just beautiful, as always Becki! She is going to love it!!

I totally recommend the Sew Mini! Get it from Hancock Fabrics when they have a sale! I think mine was $35 and $5 shipping. Deal of the century!
