The other 40th

I finished this this morning. I have made three cards for Louise's 40th and of course they all have to be different. I made the first one back in Sept. I'd forgotten when her birthday was and got ahead of myself.
It was the 40 number shape so I am satisfied that I have achieved my goal.
Daughter requested I personalise yesterdays card and will add a hand cut leaf with the birthday girl's name by the FD's near the tassle. Well that is the intention :-/



I used Joanna Sheen's lace paper for the background and the image is one I found googling. Image and sentiment layered on purple patterned paper and silver mirri. Hand cut nunmber, more FD's, pearls and finished with organza ribbon


Thank you for looking

This is absolutely beautiful Irene, she is such a lucky girl to receive all of these gorgeous cards. I have a large painting of this Sara Moon image, so it holds a special place in my heart.
