Agnes celebrates an 80th birthday

A friend needs an 80th birthday card, and this will be one of her options.  Agnes is one of my favorite AI images.  This time I paper pieced her dress and purse to match the bg.  I have learned that choosing the right DP for the dress is important - and it is important to position the tiny designs correctly!  By the way, I am using this for a couple of "spring" challenges - looks like she has her whole spring garden on her head.  For dazzle I have used a number of metallic pens - especially for the shoes, jewelry, and for the edging on the dress.  The polka dot bg is washi tape, and the wider deep rose strip is from a Spellbinder die which embosses.  The numbers are Cuttlebug Olivia.
