birthday wishes

Lots of bits and pieces came together to make this card. It was challenging and fun!! That's kind of like life, right? You put all your experiences together, stir them up, add your perceptions and Bingo! there's the life you're living!

This card was actually made for a bingo challenge......I had to choose a letter on the bingo card going across or down and do everything in each box. For example, I chose "G" across, so my card has: tags, ribbon, stitching, masking and blue. My stitching may be hard to see; I stitched on two buttons and one ribbon. Yes, I do have a sewing machine waiting in a box for me to open up...that WAS one of this summer's projects. Didn't get done.

The more I look at this card, the more I like it. It just fits for me. I love the soft, vintage feel.
