Big, huge 13th card


Whew, this took a bit of doing!! I have done quite a few number cards but wanted to do something a bit more special for Grandaughter from her Mum & Dad. The initial idea seemed simple enough but it took an age to get the template just right, cut out and fixed together. The pics are not very good. I was in a rush to get it to DD this evening and didn't know that it was such a rubbish pic or would have tried again.

I have not cut the No:13 through to the back as I usually do. Instead I have left the back solid and lined it with a pale lilac paper.

Used a little bit of lace, organza ribbon and the lovely mulberry wild roses from Joanna Sheen, flourish in silver mirri-type card and bling

Thank you for visiting. Your comments are greatly appreciated.
