My first Challenge!

I've never entered a challenge before so I thought I'd give it a go.  This card is for the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge "Birthday".  I've used the following Cheery Lynn Dies.   English Tea Party Doily and it's matching Angle Wing. The Small Lace Butterfly with the included Angel Wing.  Two great tatted borders Dancing Doily Lace Border and Queen Anne's Lace Border and the cute little tatted motif from the center of the Dainty Dutch Deco Frame .

I added a bit of my own tatting, the border at the bottom of the card and the motif in the center of my doily die flower and a few flowers and butterflies here and there.  For the tatting shuttle I used a clear stamp from Impressions Obsession Butterflies and Blossoms,  and the background was stamped with Heartfelt Creations Shabby Chic Lace.  For the birthday tag I wanted the look of a tatted edge on an old linen handkerchief  so I used some sticky back canvas.
