Good Morning Ladies,
The girls came home from School yesterday afternoon and asked me if I would make a card for their friend Jaz, but the request came with a long list of what I could use and couldn't, apparently "she isn't a 'girly girl", bit of a "Goth/Emo", so "nothing too pretty"! So I sat and scratched my head for a bit, then An idea popped into my head, I used my Scan and Cut to cut the '17' into a piece of black card (not blue as it looks in photo).
The girls then chose a Gold Pearlescent card to go behind the '17' aperture, I used this to die cut the rest of the embellishments for the front of the card. I used my Stampin Up Flourish Thinlets to die cut the flowers, I thought that they added a touch of prettiness without being too girly, I added pearls coloured with a gold metallic pen for the flower centres and corners.
The insert was decorated with the same flowers, the Sentiment is from a Stamping Up set called "Curly Cute", it is sadly no longer available. I even had to make an envelope to fit this 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 inch card.
Lynda, I hope all went smoothly with your surgery, I hope you make a super speedy recovery too, sending you lots of love and hugs xxxx
I hope you all have much better weather today, it felt cold all day here.
Have fun, whatever you are up to,
love and hugs to all of you,
