Birthday card for a friend - another up-cycled card.

Hello, five years ago I made a card for a challenge, and while I was happy with the stamping and colouring, I wasn't really happy with the card so it never got sent out. Well I dug it back out of my box of unsent cards, took off the Sarah Kay stamped image and lace and threw the rest away, and reused the image and lace to make a new card (this is the third card I've up-cycled). I think I did a better job this time, I hope you agree. PS. Boldog sz├╝linapot is Hungarian for happy birthday, as my friend is Hungarian ...

Original card
New card reusing stamped image and lace.

The flower stamp is by Inkadinkado.
Flowers made with Nellie Snellen flower punches and embossers and a French text page I found on the internet,  altered and re coloured with my graphics program.
The running stitch and cross stitches were all done by hand.
Here is a link to the French text page, which is on my Pintrest page. You'll find some other pages and other craft stuff on there you may like - French Text
Take care and keep smiling :)

I'm sorry I have to agree, the recycled card is absolutely fabulous, love all the colour and details.
