40th card - No: 2

A5 landscape

The birthday girl had a great party last night although I haven't heard how she is feeling today :-)
I used one of the large petals from a Gerbera flower from Dunelm which are usually too big for cards. Adding the greeting cut with a round nestie to the centre filled it up. Sometimes I fold the large flowers but had this idea to give a different look.

After the pic was taken I decided to add some Glamour Dust to the edge of the sentiment circle. The no:40 was cut on the CB and then put through the swiss dots folder. Afterwards I wish I'd left it plain.

I had to make three cards and the third was a card I had made for a challenge.

Thank you for your visit and any comments you care to leave are always appreciated.
