100th Birthday Card

Hi everyone,

I would like to share my latest card with you.

I was asked to make a 100th Birthday for a friends Mum, her requirements were Purple, Lilac, White & Silver, I think I got it about right!

For a long time now I have admired Teresa Allday's cards on FB I checked out her blog and was happy to see she has a tutorial on how she makes her gorgeous cards.

I wanted the card to stand normally so instead of using 2 x 6" cards I kept it to 
1 x 6" the triangles were cut from American card stock and 
PION design "My Precious Daughter" PD4909, PD4911 
with Maja Design Fika for the insert on the front of the card & tag.

The inside of the card is matted and stitched the same as the front, this is a first for me lol,

Flowers are from Kaisercraft & glittered with Ranger Stardust Stickles.

I have to say I am really pleased with how the card turned out, the Design papers just seem to make a lovely card really without trying. 

I hope that the lady receiving it has a lovely birthday!

Until next time.. happy crafting
