Happy 60th


Time for a new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge and we want to see your shaped cards this time. My Mum asked me to make a card for her hairdresser for her 60th. She enjoys a night out and a drink and is young at heart so I thought I would use Cocktail Emma. They wear pink and black in the hairdressers and that colour stuck in my mind when I was making the card. It's the first time I have made a shaped easel card with this die and really like the effect.


The front in more detail.
