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.

This is for:

Butterfly spot 95: letter P - purple, pearls and patterned paper
Alphabet: X for xtra special occasion
Archi-scraps February: use lots of rhinestones or bling
Crafty catz 404: anything goes + option: pretty ribbon
4 crafty chicks 390: anything goes + twist: lots of layers
Simon says Wednesday: add a die cut
As you like it: favourite way to add a sentiment and why - I like to print on card, die cut/emboss - think it looks professional
Crafty sentiments: add flowers
A gem of a challenge 213: spring flowers
Dragonfly dreams February: flowers
Simply create too 135: favourite colour combo - anything with purple
2 crafty critter crazies 11: anything goes (insects: butterflies)
Sasayaki glitter February: a project for a loved one
Noor February: celebrations
Inspiration destination 144: anything goes
Eclectic Ellapu February: anything goes
