For a sister's 80th birthday


This is a commissioned card made some time ago, but not blogger. for a sister's 80th birthday. I used paper from a decoupage kit I bought some years ago - it has a sheen on it which is lovely. I printed the greeting and quickly poured silver embossing powder to heat, cutting with a todo die and edging with a spectrum noir pen. The lovely organza ribbons with gems and the butterflies were from Hobbycraft. The little decoupaged topper was from another kit from long ago.
