A Vintage Journey "Let's Celebrate" Challenge

Hello everyone,

I created a card for a lady that is my dear friend's sister and I have an honor to know...This card will be on it's way to Los Angeles, CA next week and I sure do hope that birthday girl likes it when she sees it...

This card measures 6" x 6" and is embellished with a childhood photo of the birthday girl, framed with a card stock frame covered with texture paste stencil and glitter. Since Lisa's favorite color is white, the entire card was made using white embellishments.
I added shabby bow decorated with a fleur de lis charm covered with gesso and sprinkled with glitter. This lady is a hair stylist to the stars so I included a little scissors charm to the bow. :)

The shabby bird cage is also covered with glitter and is holding a piece of seambinding that is used to actually tie the card, just to add to excitement to see what is inside. :)

Inside of this card has a pocket decorated with texture past stencil and glitter and inside the pocket are three tags with wishes for this wonderful lady...

I created the sentiment on my PC and printed it on white heavy card stock. Then I cut it in shape of a banner and attached it to a silicon mold frame covered with glitter.

I also made a pretty box to accompany the card...

I am entering this card into the fabulous challenge

I hope you enjoyed this post.
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by...


  1. Oh boy Samra, I just love it when you pull out the mixed media products! This is top notch crafting right here!! That glitter is incredible and making the pocket for the tags is such a brilliant idea! I adore all of the shabby ribbon and the beautiful embellishments on the front! What a lucky birthday girl to receive such a one-of-a-kind work of art! Until next time, my talented friend - holiday hugs :)
