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.

My first use of my Goldie digi from Wee Stamps and designed my background paper on the computer. I added the Time to Relax sentiment stamp by Lili of the Valley to a pearl. I inked the edges of the card with China Blue Distress ink.

I’ve just got Flexmarkers so I decided to colour using only Flemarkers!!

I added stickles to the bubbles
