“My little mockingbird”

Hi all wonderful Maja-fans!  I went to a birthday party last weekend, and can you belive…?? The lady of honor became 95 years old. An she is still living in her own house. I wanted to make her a nice card, and here it is. I have used three pattern papers from the gorgeous collecton Summertime.


I have tried to paint the image in the same colours as in the papers. The image is from Stempelglede and the collection Vintage garden. I have coloured it with Distress Ink, re-inkers. For the red colour I have used Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany and Black Soot. I have also added Crackle Accents on some of the flowers.


The small flowers are punched out from a Retro flower punch, small. I have inked the edges with Distress pad, Walnut Stain. and added Stickles, Star Dust. In the middel I have added Licquid pearls.


From another angle.


The numbers are cut out from a Sizzix die, and I have added Fran-tage, Shabby White. I have also added Fran-tage around the image, on the edges.


Some birthday tags and the tassels made with  Magnolia DooHickey dies (vol 5).


I have put some Sisal grass behind the flowers.


Here comes the list of the gorgeous papers used:

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design Blog!
