40th Birthday

************

Hello everyone and a big welcome to Andrea, a new follower :)


Commission - the brief was purple and yellow.

The gold centrepiece is a flattened piece of  a beer can, embossed with the textile EF and heat embossed  with gold EP.  I pasted the BP onto card and cut an oval in the centre and fixed it over the centrepiece with foam tape.
I made the oval sentiment in Publisher, cut around it with fancy scissors, edged with purple chalk pad and added that with foam pads to the gold centre.
Lots of flowers, ribbon and roses from WO and as it was a special card I parted with a fancy metal corner from Linda, Funky Junkie's Zibbet shop.
I made a box for this as it is rather bulky.
