65th Birthday


Had a lovely lazy day yesterday, with the awful weather I just didnt feel like doing much. The boys all played on there games (including Hubby) so I made a card!

I`ve made this for my Auntie who will be 65 next month. The image was kindly sent to me by Cass and I coloured it using water colour pencils . I used a silver Sakura pen for the beads and a little gem on her earing. I wraped vellum around the card as a base then layered the image onto Bazzil cs and matching paper. I stamped and embossed the tag with the pearls threaded through it. The 65 is chipboard coloured black and finally used a couple of gems on the tag and the corners of the card. I was after something quite traditional and elegant .

My son Jake has gone on a hike today with cubs, but he usually hates walking anywhere!...can`t help wondering how he is getting on. Now off to make Breville toasties.......mmmmm!
