This is a card I've been asked to make by my Aunt as a special 80th birthday card. I don't know the recipient, so have decided to play it safe, and rather than go down the 'cute' route, I thought I'd use a floral image (Penny Black stamp 'Gossamer') gifted to me by my friend Karen. I've coloured it with pearly paints, and then decoupaged the flower heads and leaves. I've kept the layout quite simple, and have used complimentary shades of purple card, some with embossed with my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' embossing folder. The sentiment stamp (by Hero Arts) is embossed with pearlised lilac embossing powder. I made the tag using Nestabilites, and then added numbers, die-cut using the Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet, and tied it on with a piece of lilac ribbon.
This card is not my usual style, but overall I'm pleased with it - I just hope that my Aunt likes it too!
