Tea Party! EDITED

FOR ALL YOU WHO ASKED WHO DANIEL O'DONNELL IS CLICK HERE

Had a request yesterday for a card for a young lady who is reaching her 40th birthday. She is over on holidays here (Ireland) from America and her cousins are having a surprise party. The lady is a very special person to them all (she has Downs Syndrome) and she is totally in love with Daniel O'Donnell! So much so that her parents bring her over twice a year to go to his special tea parties! While she is there Daniel brings her up on the stage and she sings with him!! What an honour to be able to do a card for this very special lady, just hope I have got it right lol.
I went with the tea party theme.
Papers - freebie from CRAFT Eiglas this week
