70th Birthday


I was asked to make a card for a 70th Birthday. The lady makes lace, used to decorate cakes and loves her garden. I used a LOTV topper which I diecut with a Spellbinders labels die. The papers are Dovecraft Serendipity, lace from Crafty Ribbons, flowers from Wild Orchid and I used a Martha Stewart fern punch and some felt numbers from Hobbycraft plus my favourite pearl pen.
