I hope you are all enjoying the weekend and are having some warmer weather like we are here. It certainly makes a welcome change to the nasty cold spell - let's hope that spring is on its way :)
I have been busy with a couple of DT cards that I can't show you yet, so thought I would post a 50th birthday card that I made for a friend a little while ago ...
This one is a 6x6" easel card made using purple papers from my stash - I stamped extra swirls to fill in some of the gaps. The image is 'Fizzy Moon - Thanks a Bunch' (one of my favourites!) I coloured him with my Promarkers and chose grey this time to match the colour tones of the overall card - seems to work ok. The bouquet of flowers is stamped and decoupaged to give some extra dimension. The 'Fab' lettering is cut using my little old Sizzix machine and the numbers are chipboard covered with purple glitter. The sentiment is from an old stamp set (but not sure of the make). Extra embellishments include some flat back purple pearls, some tiny punched daisies and some purple self adhesive gems for the the flower centres.
I would like to enter this one into the challenge over at 'I Love Promarkers - One for the Girls'.
