1930's Jeanne

Hello, and Happy Tuesday!!
I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!!

Saturday was my Mother in Law's 84th Birthday
and all she wanted was to have her 3 boys together :)
My husband, who is the oldest brother, planned a dinner
at a local restaurant and invited the brothers, 
the grandchildren and  all the great grandchildren!!  
Out of her 12 grandchildren, only 2 were missing.  
She was so happy to have her family all together!!

Here is a picture of my MIL with her 3 boys!!
(my hubby is the one in the red shirt :) )

So she was born in 1931, so I decided to make her a card
using the Julie Nutting 1930's Jeanne Doll Stamp.
I just love the way my card turned out, and my
MIL loved it too!!

Here is a close up of her face,
I colored her face, hair and skin with my Spectrum Noir Markers
and paper pieced her dress with paper from a My Mind's Eye
6x6 paper pad.  The sentiment if from Craftin Desert Divas 
I added some fun embellishments to finish off the card.

Thanks for stopping by.

I will be entering this in the following challenges:
