February Birthdays - Part Three

It's the third part of my February birthdays and this card I've made for  lovely Red Hat chapter member. We call Adele the Countess of Serenity as that is how you feel in her company. She is also known as our Countess of Culture as Adele will, throughout the year, will find us something interesting to do, be it an art exhibition or a visit to the V & A.  This is one of my favouritevisits  as I've been visiting the V & A for well over fifty years, especially their needlework collections.

The card was inspired by two lovely friends, Sarah and Tams. I first saw the sentiment on a beautiful card that Sarah had made for Whimsy Stamps and you can find both sentiment and Sarah's card here. Tams has used one of the other Smile sentiments here on her blog. After seeing the beautiful cards that both these lovely people created, well, no contest, I had to have them.

The background paper is by K&Co that is a couple of years old and I've used the Spellbinders Trellis and Plain and Scallop Squares. You can also see my favourite skeleton leaves from Marianne Designs. The swirl is a new long die from X-Cut.
