Hey everyone, Hope everyone is OK and enjoying the weather, whatever part of the world your in :)
I have had a very hectic time recently, at home and in the world of craftiness!
One of the other special cards I had to make recently, was for my daughters best friend (a girl I have known since birth!)
The card from us was a very simple and glam giant '18' on a white square background, made out of silver gilding flakes, but the card I am sharing today is the one I made to her from my daughter.
She loves vintage, shabby chic things and is into things like pocket watches and the old style birdcages etc. So when given the task of making her a card, the first thing that comes to mind when I think of pocket watches,is the white rabbit from Alice in wonderland, this also fits with old, vintage things as both pocket watches and Alice can be this :)
So after checking with my daughter that her friend would like a vintage Alice card, I set out deciding what to do and making a start. I must admit, I loved making this card, it was so much fun and distressing and making stuff look old, is fast becoming one of my favourite things :p

I then added a section of the script from the scene and made sure it was a bit that mentioned birthdays :p
And coloured the main image using promarkers.
I hope you like it. I had great fun making it :)
