60th Birthday Card

Good morning to you work today cos it's bank holiday although we're not exactly having typical May fact it's been down right cold this weekend!

A friend of mine asked me to make a 60th birthday card for her sister. The only brief was that she loves pink and had slight hippy tendencies lol! I found this fab image over at the Scrapbook Stamp Society and I've coloured her in using Promarkers.

The card is actually A4 in size and they are always so hard to photograph and capture the detail, so I've done a couple of close ups just in case you want to see more.

I've used Die-namics ‘By The Numbers’ Dies for the '60' and added some sparkle with glamour dust

Design Papers: Bo Bunny (sorry, I can't remember the name of the collection)
Digital Image: Heather Valentin (Blossom Hippie Chick)
Colouring Medium: Smooth White Card & Promarkers
Embellishments: Flower Brads, Mini Blossoms, Hydrangea Petals, Mulberry Ribbon and Pink Satin Ribbon all from my craft stash.
Tools: Die-namics ‘By The Numbers’ Dies, Quickutz Corner Die, Nestabilities, MS Border Punch, Embossing Folder
Sentiments: Created on the Computer
