Pink 65th

Request from my neighbour - a 65th birthday card for a friend.
I do love doing the easel cards so persuaded her this was what she wanted, hee hee.

For the following challenges -

Cute Daisy May - Flowers
Friday Sketchers - Sketch
Spoonful of Sugar - Distress ink, pearls & glitter
Totally Gorgeous - Flower power
Simon Says - Vintage with flowers
Penny's Paper-crafty Challenge - Birthday
Tanda Teaser 135 - Riots of petals

This lovely image and the square are distressed around the edges with a tiny bit of TH vintage photo distress ink. Rouge ColorBox chalk was used on the rest.
There is a tiny bit of glitter on some of the flowers...but I can't see it in the pic.
Used fancy scissors to cut around the black mat and edged it with gold Pentouch.
I did some stitching around the square mat, made a stick pin and went overboard with the flowers.

I made a small flower from a piece of the main pink BP using one of
Crafty Ann's digi images. I do love this useful and quite easy to cut out.
There are 3 layers but I only cut out 2 for this
I added a very discreet No:65 peeloff to the centre

Paper - 'Classic' from the Crafty Secrets vintage collection bought aaages ago from Joanna Sheen
Colouring - Copics
MS border punch
Pearls, flowers, leaves etc. from stash

Thank you for stopping by and for all the lovely comments you are kind enough to very encouraging and very much appreciated.
See you again soon.....I hope :-)

This is fabulous Irene, the flowers are all just perfect and I love how you've used the 65 as the centre of one of them - a very classy way to do an 'age' birthday card for an adult.
