65th Birthday

8inch Square

Just in case you think I am out of my mind, I have to explain that the number 55 on a 65th birthday card is a standing joke between the lady who asked for this card and her birthday friend ;-))

I made something slightly different to the design we talked about, but I was relieved that she was very pleased with it. I'm just hoping her friend will be too.

I have based this on MMSC14 sketch which is what I had in mind from the beginning. How fortunate is that, eh!

The challenge at Daring Cardmakers is Lace and I have used some very pretty lace here.

The Cute Daisy May challenge is to have a word or sentiment as the focal point





I decorated the inside too but forgot to take a pic.

The wrap is silver mirri card and as you know, quite difficult to photograph.




Thank you for stopping by

Sorry not to have visited so often these last couple of weeks Irene, I'm struggling to sit at the comp for long just now, but it's given me some lovely card to look at today.
