Love & Happiness.......

Good afternoon to you all..... hope you're having a fine weekend!

I'm off out in a few minutes to watch my hubby playing cricket and hopefully score a few fours and sixes along the way.... it's perfect weather to sit on a comfy recliner and relax.

Today's card has a bit of an art deco feel about it I think.... I didn't start off with that in mind but I think the Webster's Pages paper I used draws on that theme.... and the lovely vintage lady certainly looks like she could be a fashionable filmstar from the era too!

I've hand torn and rolled the large roses and the leaves are a Marianne die. I've added some liquid pearl dots here and there and edged the paper with a stitching border stamp. You might also spot the sweet little fabric bird I squeezed in above the main sentiment.

I'm entering the following challenges:
