60th Birthday

Hi again,

Had a bit of a panic with this one, as it was requested ages ago, and I forgot about it, horror of horrors!!!   Luckily, I had a couple of days to knock something together, thank goodness.

I decided to use this image from Whiff of Joy, as the lady who the card is for, is a bit of a 'hippy', and I figured this image might appeal.  The papers are from Basic Grey's Porcelain pack, and are some of my favourites, (guess I must have been feeling guilty about forgetting, to use these lovelies, lol).  The photograph doesn't do the colour scheme justice, as the outer mat and edging are actually gold mirri, but as always, the light reflected off of it, and it does't look quite right. 

I printed off a sheet of plain paper in a sort of salmon colour to blend with the patterns, and then used it to make the flowers.  I felt that as it's for a 'special' birthday a bit of extra bling would be nice, so stamped the flowers randomly with a swirly stamp, and embossed them with gold embossing powder, before pinning them together with silver brads that I disguised by embossing with gold, too.  The number 60 was computer generated, and then embossed around the edge to match the rest of the flowers.  Hope you like it.

Hugs - Judi xx
