Happy Birthday Shauna

This is the card that I hope has made it across the Atlantic and is with my Inkspirational teammie, Shauna. If not Shauna, it's on its way!

Shauna writes all the winners' posts at Inkspirational, and she does an amazing job of working quietly in the background and making our winners the stars.

The building and the woman are stamps from a French-themed set by Sheena Douglass. I have been to France several times (relatively easy from London) , and I have noticed that they seem to have a lot more poodles than we do in the UK!  The sentiment stamp is Clearly Besotted and the birds are Indigo Blu, I think. Did you notice the paper-piecing on the dress, hat and awning?

Anyway, Happy Birthday to Shauna , hope you have a lovely day and thanks for all you do.

This is such a sweet sentiment!! Thank you Marina! I just received the card yesterday. Great timing! It is SO cute in person. I love how the dress and window awning is cut from different paper and pasted into the stamp. So clever! And the pink border on the white stamped panel looks fantastic. I also received a beautiful Christmas card just the day before this one!

Thank you so much. It really is so meaningful to me that you took time and put thought into getting the cards to me. I wish you a fabulous Christmas!

- Shauna
