A Birthday card

This card is for a friend who is turning Sixty this year, and I didn’t want to do the usual plastering her age on it as I thought she may get quite a few of those, the image is another Lili of the valley that I managed to get at the craft show show the other weekend, believe me they were selling out like hot cakes,

I’m entering this for the following challenges,

LaLaLandscrafts~ no DP, Paperplay~ Birthday for someone special, Dutch Dare~ Summer in Winter,P1010749

Items Used;

Distress inks,

Lili of the valley stamp,

Stickles~ crystal,Star dust,

Flowers~Papermania, ribbon ~ stash,

MS~ Butterfly punch,


I’ve edged the Nestie oval with the stickles as I didn’t want to back it with anything, and highlighted the butterfly antenna and flower centre,

I’ve also changed my blog background, let me know what you think,

Not long to the new challenge OSAAT, starts on Sunday in case you missed it, hope to see you there,

Have a good day, hugs Liz xx

Hi Liz, firstly sorry for missing some of your post,s...I have had my head down trying to make card's for the DT's I recently joined, just need more hour's in the day now...

Really love your new background...very elegant...I tried a few week's back but left it in the end as I was worried I would loss stuff.

Your card's gorgeous... looks fab with the yellow paper and flower's...
I hae that little imaged coloured ready for a card, I coloured the flower in lilac...just need to finish it now..

Just seen my blog pic in your side bar, can I ask how you do that in the gadget section, I tried that too, wish I were more computer savy...

Great card Liz...lovely colouring
