Happy Birthday Heidi……..


I hope you are all well. I have made a card for Heidi from Simon Says Stamps as she is celebrating her birthday and I would like to join in the celebrations as Heidi is just the loveliest lady.


I thought I would also join in with the Simon Says Stamps challenge and have made my card using the sketch by Iris. Unfortunately, I am too late to enter as I have missed this deadline. Never mind I still loved using your sketch Iris thank you.

Sketch von Iris 12

I have coloured my Tilda image with distress inks. The background is distressed with tattered rose and edged with vintage photo as are the papers which I am in love with from Magnolia. I have added stickles around my image and liquid pearls on the oval behind.

The flowers are distressed with vintage photo and sprayed with glimmer mist. The little butterflies are a tiny punch and I have added liquid pearls in the middle.


Well thank you so much for looking and take great care.

love kim x

inks used

face – vintage photo, tattered rose dress,shoes,scarf – tattered rose, top, slip and socks weathered wood, black soot, spoon – frayed burlap, black soot, hair – brushed corduroy, antique linen.
