Shaken. Not Stirred.


Today I'm sharing with you a card a friend asked me to make for his wife because, although they've been together for a long while they only got married last year so this was the first birthday he was able to call her his wife!

I know the cards I made went down well as Claire posted this one, and the one from the children, on Facebook on the morning of her birthday saying that they were the best birthday cards ever so I must have done something right ;) 

I've used Martini Melissa from Simply Betty and I've paper pieced her dress - I used the spots on the dress as my inspiration and the two wee triangular brads I found when I was sorting some stuff out and I thought they went rather well.
