Runway Inspired Challenge #41

Hello Gorgeous!

Welcome to Runway Inspired Challenge! This challenge's sponsor is Penny Black. The winning prize? THREE stamp sets from Penny Black!!!
We DT were so lucky to receive some generous goodies from Penny Black to play for this challenge. I chose one of the new Delicate Wings that PB has released last month.
happy birthday!!!
How do you like the card? It was great to come up with the idea....but the tedious part was to punch out the small flowers and glue them one. at. a. time! 

Please check out our DT's work and I know you will be immensely inspired! (see here).

On a personal note, my son David turns 19 today! Happy birthday, David!
This boy makes me SMILE!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Can see why this young man makes you smile...cute and he cooks (who could ask for more...have a couple of granddaughters who need someone good to look at). Your card is lovely...great take on the haute couture.
