60th B'Day Card


Morning you lovely lot. It's still really cold here and showing no signs of letting up either. I guess we should be thankful that we haven't had much snow apart from the old flurry here and there. I hope you are managing to stay warm...best weather for staying indoors and crafting me thinks!

I was asked to make a 60th birthday card for a lady who is mad about Arsenal but they did not necessarily want a footy image on it. I racked my brains and came up with red and white gingham with a navy mat and the lady who ordered the card seemed really happy with the end result especially as she didn't want anything too girly.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges...
Paper Playtime #5...Anything Goes (ends 17/3/13)
Challenges 4 Everybody #15...Anything Goes (ends 15/3/13)

Digital Design Papers: Carol Clarke
Card Stock: SU! (Night of Navy)
Embellishments: Flowers and gems from my craft stash
Tools: Nestabilities and Cricut machine to cut the large numbers
Sentiment: (Circular, created on the computer) TLC
