The last 65th card


I've made this for the same lady as yesterday's card. Her daughter has invited us to her party is on Friday, isn't that nice of her.
The birthday girl will be in for a few surprises. The biggest one is that her sister is coming over from Australia.

I don't think this qualifies for any challenges, although it is very close to Sketch Saturday :-(

This beautiful image is from one of the few CD's I own, Vintage Photo's, from Debbi Moore Designs.
I love using the MS border punches so much I used it twice, hee hee!
The oval was cut by hand using fancy scissors cos I printed the image too big to fit the largest oval Nestie scallop. I have sparkled the handcut label under the sentiment with my fave Glamour Dust.

The image and the sentiment are fixed with foam tape. I added a quite superfluous skeleton leaf, just because I've got lots and very rarely use them.
The flowers are cherry blossoms from Wild Orchid Crafts - must go shopping there again soon for some more. I wish I could have some in every colour.

Thank you for visiting, please do call again :-)

Whoa Irene, I know I haven't 'surfed' for a while but where did all these stunning cards come from?
Seriously my dear friend, they are all fabulous and I'm in awe!
(Have to say I LOVED SIL's 'I Love Lucy' card, so funny!)
