A busy day and a commissioned card

It was our church's minimarket this morning and these are pictures of my tables (you can get a closer look if you click on the pictures):

It's been a busy day (in fact, a busy few weeks) - we then went over to see mum for a chinese take-away. When I got home I needed to make a commissioned 90th birthday card, so I got out some decoupage and matching paper that I bought some time ago - there's also a matching lined envelope, which is a nice finishing touch - and used this with papers from Basic Grey marjolaine, a stitched ribbon, a craftime sentiment and gold numerals that have been altered with a purple copic.

I've used three different patterned papers, so this is for Critter 88 and also for Basic Grey 56: anything goes.

I used the sketch for CPS 241:

Colours are for Birthday sundaes 32: purple, green, white, black, also for Use it Tuesday 18: one or all: orange, black or purple (the unused items are the decoupage and the matching paper that I've had for ages).

This is also for:

Creative craft world: numbers and/or add a sentiment
Creative Belli 129: 1, 2, 3, 4 - 1 sentiment, 2 numbers, 3 patterned papers, 4 decoupaged flowers
Raise the bar 81: sew what -stitching
Pals paper arts 117: CAS ribbon
Lollipop crafts 54: embellish it
Paper pretties 177: embellish
Cardmakin mamas 32: cut it out - die cuts (the decoupage)
