Two in a day - whatever next!

A smashing friend is having a birthday this week. She's the kind of person who will have you in fits of laughter within 5 minutes of being in her company and I know she will understand the sentiment in more ways than one.


I've used a sheet of old French script, bought in a kit from Pink Petticoat, as the background and pasted the vintage image of the three ladies over the top in my graphics program. This image came from, I believe, the Graphics Fairy, if you know please put me right. The lovely corset stamp is from Stampendous and the tiny sentiment came with the Vintage Corsetry stamp set from Creative Expressions. I'm in love with the Spellbinders Labels 28 that I've used to die cut the stamped image,  I know I'll be using those again. Some flowers from stash and the little bronze leaves have been recycled from a Christmas table decoration, they were too lovely to throw away.  The outer edge of the card, the die cuts and the flowers were inked with Tea Dye distress ink.
