40th Birthday Card

Well today I was shopping for new vaccum cleaner as the one I had was really screaming and needed a new motor and a few other bits. It was years old so it was time I got a new one. Then hubby and I had lunch at Dobbies Garden Centre as I just had to look in at their craft area to see if they had any new crafty items.  I refrained today as "he who must be obeyed" was with me, it is better not to let him see how much I spend on crafty items;

This was a card I made for my niece's 40th birthday, she loves pink.

I used

8 x 8 card blank
Spellbinders :
Fleur De Lis Rectangles
Persian Motifs
Picot Edge Circles

Some peel offs, embelishments, pearls and gems from my ever growing "I need that" box.

She was delighted with it and I liked it as it was so simple to put together.  She lives in Spain and will be visiting as soon as her grandson is born, 10 days and counting, and has requested 20 Christmas cards to take back with her so I better get my finger out.

Feel free to comment as I love to hear what other crafter think of my cards.

  2. Hi Wilma,
    thought I would give you a look up as you kindly made a comment on my blog.
    I have noticed you on Sue wilson's blog and Christine Emberson's. You are usually very early with you comments, so thats how I noticed you.
    Now to your card well it's wonderful no wonder your niece was pleased with it, and of course it's pink my fav colour too. Love your design.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
