It's my sister in law's 50th Birthday this week! I was picking my brains about what to make but when my niece was around, looking at bits for her wedding invitations, she spotted this card that I had already made using up some spare parts!
I wasn't sure what I was going to use it for but when she asked if it was for her Mum & enthused about how much she'd like it, the die was cast! I like this pic as I took it in daylight! A rare treat this time of year!
I coloured the image of "Martini Gretchen" who is from Digi's With Attitude! with promarkers and punched the corners for a bit of detail. I Matted the image onto the same pink card as the base card (which is a gatefold)
I then layered that onto the striped card, catching the ribbon in between the layers.
I had to complete it tonight so I added a couple of bits & an insert just to finish it off!
The "happy birthday's" are from a gold peel off strip which I cut up to get the bits I wanted.
The sentiment is a freebie that I picked up while blog hopping & I can't for the life of me remember who the kind soul was who shared it!!!
Update: The sentiment was from no other than the FAB Sentiments 4 You
I apologise for the quality of this photo as it was taken tonight & is really not great!
I added a linen paper insert, printed with a verse from Verses 4 Cards. Something about candles on her cake & having the puff to blow them out!!
Thanks for stopping by, I do hope you like her!
