40th birthday card

This card was comissioned for a 40th birthday. The recipient likes Cath Kidson so I went for floral, shabby chic in spring cottage garden colours!

A one of a kind card made for a 40th birthday.

I used a beautiful digital stamp called flower maiden 2 by A Day For Daisies . I coloured her with Promarkers and FlexMarkers and I diligently kept a list of colours I used and put it somewhere safe! (if it ever surfaces I’ll post them!!)

I used Papermania Eau De Nil Jumbo Crochet Trim to make the ribbon and topped it with a gemstone cluster.

The papers are from the beautiful Santoro Mirabelle Paper Pad and are layered onto pastel pink card which was then stickled.

I added a trio of gems to top right and bottom left of the image.


I decorated the inside of the card to match.

    What a lovely card, Jellie, and I do like your new blog! It’s brilliant. Well done for setting it up so well. Off to explore further.

    Thanks for your lovely comment. Sorry you’ve been going through it a bit, too. We had such a lovely outing yesterday. It looks likely (but not yet confirmed) that my surgery will be on Friday 27th – after 2 postponements! We’ll get there eventually…
