One I made for my Mum..

Hello, to anyone that might pop by..

This was for Mums Birthday, although I made it before we went to Spain I didn't have a chance to post it. It's big, a large 8x8"card made from 2 A4 sheets, I used another Joanna Sheen Nostalgia decoupage sheet by Fay Whittaker, I love these, they are so pretty and easy to cut out. I used flower soft, guess the flowers and around the hats. Added some ribbon, glittered the flowers and leaves, matted the decoupage onto a lavender crinkle paper, then used a glue pad to stamp and glitter white card, punched along the side.  The greeting was printed, cut with a nestie and inked around the edges.

The insert is from a Bearly Mine Designs CD, I altered the size to fit the card, then mirrored the image so it could be used to print the verse on one side and somewhere for me to write on the other. Used a quickie glue pen and crystal glitter to highlight the leaves, the bows and around the oval.
Hope you like it...

Would love to know what you think...
