A special birthday

One of the members of John's blind bowling club will be 100 on New Year's Day, so this card is to send to him. A surprise afternoon 'do' has been arranged for him a week or so later, when he will be given a big card from everyone (I've yet to make that one!).

It's safe to show this here because there's no way that the gentleman concerned would know anything about my blog.

For this card I used the sketch for Pals paper arts 74, using various sentiment papers, including a vellum on the right hand side.


The base card is a stardream midnight blue which sparkles. I continued te white birthday greeting paper on to the back of the card for a couple of inches.

Guest designer on Ooh La La: a toast to 2011

This card is for my last time as a Guest designer on Ooh-La-La - I have so enjoyed contributing for the last two months.

Today's Ooh-la-la challenge 70 is: a toast to 2011

I used one of the OLL reindeer papers from the Joyeux Noel CD - although there are no reindeer in sight! I scalloped the edges using my rotatrim cutter and used the groves to wind some PM glittery ribbon. The sentiment and the '2011' were computer generated and also scalloped with my rotatrim.
