60th birthday

A5

Well!!! This card has been doomed from the start.
I just couldn't make up my mind re BP's... printed off three different lots.
Just as I was finishing hubby asked to look at it and what did I see???
I'd stuck the back on upside down!!!!
I used Carol's Sketch 13 and now find the current sketch is 14. Another challenge missed, darn it.
I would have preferred to do the current sketch which makes me even crosser than I am right at this minute.
Remind me to check properly next time.
Aaarrrgggh.
Sorry!! You can come out from behind the sofa, I promise not to shout any more.

I'm not even happy with it but I hope the lady I've made it for likes it enough to pay me for it,LOL

On a happier note, it DOES fit Charisma Cardz Challenge 37 which is Flower Power.

Also over at La-La Land Crafts Blog we are invited to Embellish it!! . Nice one :-) as my favourite thing is to embellish. Here is flowers, Glamour Dusted shapes, gems and a bow made with some 'netty' stuff.






Thanks for calling by and any comments you might leave will make my day :-)

Oh Irene, I do sympathise my friend, I think we've all been in the same position at one time or another. (I've been making some little bags out of cardstock lately and the one I was making on Thursday nearly went out of the window two or three times!)
On a brighter note I think the card looks gorgeous and I'm sure that both your client and the receipient will be thrilled with it.
