Christmas Birthday

Evening all, thanks for dropping by.
I feel really sorry for people with birthdays in December as it must be overshadowed by the big day. My friend Adele, is one such person. She says as she gets older she'd rather forget her birthday but I'm sure she still likes to be remembered.

So here is the card I made for her birthday. I thought I would do it in good time as its easy to forget in the big rush towards Christmas.

I seem to be in the same palette again, but I know Adele likes browns and beiges and the dark red is a nod to the season. 
The papers are from LOTV as is the stamp, Emma with parcels, I think. I have used Copics to colour as well as some paper piecing of the parcels from scraps of the main papers. The papers are edged in Vintage Photo, as are the corner details.
The lace edge punch is by Martha Stewart, doily by Magnolia, corners from Marianne and ribbon and pearls are from the stash. 
Husband has gone in the bath after knocking down a wall in the back yard so I have time for myself. Tea is in the range in the simmering oven so no rush there, so time for a little more crafting!

I think I will enter this card in the following challenges:-

Crafty Little Fairies - Lace and Pearls
Creative Romance - Vintage style

Thanks for dropping over, tatty bye
