Hello dear friends, 
Showing a little card I created for a dear friends birthday.
I love to use old embroidered pieces, together with stencils, stamps and die cuts , and always have to add a little nature ,too!!

Here I also hand colored the bird and leaves !!

A new stencil showing bark from an old tree,
here mostly in white, and some lovely flowers.

Torn edges !!

I hope you like it :-) 

My grand daughter will visit with us for the next week, and I 
look forward being with her, and making tours and fun ,together.

Also a break in all the packing down my home, lol.

I wish you all a beautiful week, and will return
when Mathilde is home again.

I also have wonderful birthday gifts to show you ,
so see you soon.

Hugs and love, Dorthe

I'm so happy for you that Mathilde will visit for a week, dear Dorthe. It's wonderful that you can spend some time with your sweet granddaughter and take a break from packing as well. Have lots of fun!
Your card is beautiful. The new stencil with the wood structure looks great. The birdie and the nature finds are wonderful too.
Have a great time with Mathilde!
Hugs and love,

Lovely to click on your photos to get a closer look at this beautiful piece Dorthe.
That tree stencil was made for you and the way you've colored it and the bird and leaves gives beautiful interest.
Every detail is a delight.

How nice that you get a break from packing too.
Enjoy ♥ Enjoy oxoxo
