Happy Birthday Granddaughter

A commissioned card for a granddaughter who plays the oboe. It was a difficult one to photograph as the background was a lovely acetate with butterflies stuck on to a piece of purple mirror card. I'd run this through my xyron so that it stuck well without showing any adhesive. I created the topper digitally with the help of a couple of cliparts, adding the sentiment, printing out and matting on to purple glittered card. I then randomly added some gems.

The lovely acetate and coordinating card came from Crafter's Companion, all mounted on to a lilac card blank. Purple is my favourite crafting colour so I really enjoyed making this card.

This is for:
Time out 182: birthday or any celebration
Bastel-traum 98: birthday
Krafty chicks 548: any occasion
Lemon shortbread 140: anything goes
Crafty sentiments: anything goes
Simon says Wednesday: anything goes
Creative moments 209: anything goes
