50th birthday and MMSC9


I have had a lot of 'special' birthday cards to do this year and this one for the wife of the steward of the club we go to every two weeks. She has had a serious health problem this year and fortunately, I'm happy to say, has made a good recovery.

I thought the MMSC9 sketch was perfect for this card and really enjoyed using it

Digi image is Madison from Charmed Cards and I have coloured her dress to match the BP as near as I could.
I really love this image for celebratory cards and am in danger of being boring by using it so many times.

I added a little bit of sparkle to the flowers and the shoes are coloured with gold Pentouch. The '50' is discretely hidden in one of the flowers, lol, and the colouring in this pic is maddeningly distorted. Darn'd camera!!

Thank you for your visit and any comments you have time to leave will be gladly received

Absolutely GORGEOUS Irene, I love using this image too it's sooo girly!
I thought the 'wine' card was just perfect for those pesky men's cards.
