Birthday calendar and card

A special lady and dear cyber friend has a birthday today. Her name is Hilda and looks after us over at the bestest and wonderful 'Lot's to do revisted' forum. We met back in the good old days on Dawn Bibby's forum.
I printed pages for the book from a down load I found on Capture the moment blog. I distressed them a bit with aged mahogany and frayed burlap. The card I used is SU's crumbcake and the Papers for the covers are My minds eye and the flowers is - guess? You're right! Tis another of Tim's Sizzix dies.!!! Sandwiched between the pages is a piece of card which I punched with a Fiskars edge punch. Finally I put it all together with my BIA!

The image on the birthday card is a Stampotique original. Lurve there stamps! I Coloured it with ws wax crayons and ws paints. The stamped flowers and sentiment are from Papertrey ink. The large flower embelishment is from Prima and the other flower you see is a tag from Darkroom door.
