Happy Birthday Charley!



It is my eldest great-niece's 18th Birthday today. I wanted to do something a bit "whacky".

Fortunately Joanna Sheen is stocking the Booty'N'Boob templates, and the hanger and basque were in the set. Base card is stardream and the basque is mounted on blue shimmery glitter card from my KB stash. I punched holes in the basque with my japanese screw punch (again a purchase from Joanna) and laced with red ribbon from my Christmas Cake making stash! I made the top of the basque with pink/green glitter finish paper and added some peel-offs and a couple of roses (no guessing where I got them from - yes JS of course). I added the little card (again from my KB stash) to make it look like a gift and spelled out Charley's name on the hanger.

Can't wait to hear her reaction when she opens it later today!
