Happy Birthday Kay!

Good morning!  Today is my friend Kay's birthday!  She is now the same age as me but we aren't talking about that!!  LOL!!!  Anyway, I made this for her.  I asked some of her family to email photos of her when she was little and they happily obliged.  I chose this sweet photo of her when she was about a year old. I printed it in sepia and got to work.  I altered a plaque that I have had for a number of years.  I prepped it with gesso and then painted it with black acrylic paint. I used my Spellbinders Grand Calibur to cut the Oval, Beaded Oval and Grand Oval and also the Oval for the sentiment and Fancy Tag. I did cut the Fancy Tag in half to better fit my design.  I ran the Grand Oval through my Cuttlebug with the Kassie's Brocade embossing folder.  It didn't cover the entire oval but I was able to camouflage the areas that didn't emboss.  The sentiment is from the Eternity set and the tulips are from the Tulip Corner set, both from Our Daily Bread designs.  I colored the tulips with copics, and cut them out to frame the photo.  I also did lots of sponging with Tim Holtz Antique Linen and Vintage Photo inks.  The designer paper and card stock is from StampinUp! and the tag is Neenah card stock.   I added lace and ribbon and then some Martha butterflies and Zva pearls!  I gave this to her during her party and she loved it!!!
