Birthday garden

I needed to make another commissioned 80th birthday card (there seem to hav been a lot of them recently - 80th birthdays, that is).

The patterned A5 base card is by Dena designs, to which I added some DCWV stitched ribbon and the invertage garden design, a purchase two or three years ago from Create & Craft, with the addition of a computer generated sentiment, both mounted on to silver mirror card.

This is for:

Crafty Ann 40: happy birthday
My partner in crafting crime 26: incorporate numbers
Your next stamp 42: pop it up (I used foam tape for the invertage)
Kaboodle 66: lots of layers
2 sisters 39: how does your garden grow?
Freshly brewed 45: beach or summer
PaperPlay 19: celebrating summer
Sentimental Sundays 54: anything goes
Crafty creations 118: anything goes
Penny's 53: anything goes
Scrappy frogs: anything goes
Sew many challenges 53: anything goes
Inspire me Fridays 6: anything goes


  1. A lovely card for an 80th birthday. I am never quite sure whether I really like pirimage, invertage etc but it works very well with this image. Kate
