Happy Birthday To You

Hello Bloggers, are you all having a good week, do hope so.
I have made this for my crafty friend Louise its her Birthday today, she loves everything Autumn especially the colours, loves trees and owls and buttons  so I knew that I had to include them somewhere, I think it is quite a fitting card for her.
 5 of us crafty girls have all met up for coffee this morning, we have had so many giggles and such a good time hope you enjoyed it Birthday girl, I certainly did.

Dont forget you still have time to go with the Sir Stampalot Challenge
Autumn Breezes a button and a bow.

I have used Sizzix embossing folder fall set. and coloured the raised embossing with distress inks it took a while but I think it was worth it. I have used SU linen thread to make the scalloped edge on the side.
the girl with doggy is Penny Johnson Looking Chic
and the words woodware.
the punch is SU.

Ever so sweet Chris, what a great Autuminal (If that's a proper word!) image, she looks like I used to when I took my dogs out in the middle of winter...dog's don't care if you are cold and cannot be bothered to go out, they are always up for it!!
Gorgeous us of the tree and pumpkins. Debbiexx
