Happy Birthday Joyce

Good morning peeps!
It's been a while I know! I'm Not getting much time in my craft room 
over the summer months but I did manage to make this little card
for Joyce, my dear Mother In Law's 80th Birthday today.

The base card is 8"x 8".
The papers are from the My Minds Eye, Best of Paisley pad.
The gorgeous image is So Chic For HOLLY, by Rick St Dennis
She's perfect for my MIL as she also  has two poodles!
The image was coloured with a mix of Promarkers & Flexmarkers.

I made the sentiment button in my graphics programme.
I've included it in Png. form below. 
If you'd like it, just click on the pic & save to you computer.
All I ask is please don't share, send your friends over to collect it if they'd like it.

The lace & vintage style seam binding are from my stash.
I used spellbinders circle dies to cut out the image& entiment, then 
distress inked whilst still in the die.
 The fish tail was cut using a square punch.
The inside was decorated too.
Thanks for popping in today, I do appreciate your visit!
