70th Birthday

Allsorts challenge 47 - petals and pearls
Meljens challenge 2 - girly colours
One Stitch at a Time challenge 7 - Anything goes
Pollycraft challenge 38 - Anything goes

The sketch is Clare's Weekly Challenge at DoCrafts - I've only entered this challenge once before but thought this weeks sketch was just right for the card I wanted to make.

This is for a friend we met in Portugal a few years ago. Having been busy with 'paying' jobs I left it a bit late doing this so I hope she gets it in time for her birthday.

The flowers were white and I spritzed them with Cosmic Shimmer spray.
I used Ruby Red - I'm loving this stuff, although the other colours are rather pale - I guess I need to be more generous with the powder.
The BP is called Sprout from Shabby Shoppe - I think this collection will become a favourite of mine.

Papers - Shabby Shoppe digi download
Flowers - Wild Orchid
Pearl pin - Wild Orchid plus another pearl and a crystal

Thank you for stopping by and the lovely comments you leave :-)
