Commissioned Birthday Card

The same customer that asked for the Art Deco bookmark also wanted a birthday card with angels on it and the rest was left to me.  That's what I like - just an indication on the topic and then I can pick what I think they'll like.

The images for this card are from Joanna Sheen's Precious Petals Cd.  The CD is wonderful and it was hard which images to use but as I went for a square concertina card I mainly went for square shaped angel images.  All the papers and card were used from my stash on the table apart from the heart shaped papers were were from Crafty Ann's Digi Store.  It's amazing how my stash of paper and card is going down and down - in a few months' time I might be needing to print papers off again but at least it has been a good New Year's Resolution to use up my paper/card stash as we are nearly at the end of March and I'll still going strong.

The card is finished off with peel-offs, gems, ribbon, flowers, charms (which I've had for some years now), card candy, butterfly embellishments and pearls.  Yes it's bit of mixture of embellishments but I think the expanse of the card means that it can take it.  

Roll on next week when I should find out if I got it right for the card and the bookmark!!!

I think you'll find that both the card and bookmark are perfect Kym. They are so gorgeous, how could they not be? I love the idea of a four sided bookmark - must put one on my to do list!
