Lace hearts and flowers

pattern by Tina Cox in PCM.

I've made this for my MIL who will be 80 tomorrow.
It took me hours and hours and hours........
But I am really pleased with it; I think it might be the best parchment work I have made.

Each flower layer was cut and coloured individually before being assembled with brads.

Lots of grid work in the middle and edge pricking and cutting.

Backed onto rainbow paper, then gold card (her favourite colour) then onto some Dawn Bibby card.

Handmade bow and sentiment (also backed onto rainbow and gold to match).

And finally a piccie of her when she was 5years old.

I also made a box to put it in.

Thank you for looking and for any comments; always appreciated
