Commissioned Birthday Card


A customer wanted me to make a birthday card for her best friend but gave no idea of what to do.  I decided to use an image on the My Craft Studio Deco Follies CD of an image designed by Nancy Watt.  I've used this image a few times before but I love it so much.  I have done three layers of decoupage and just used plain card instead of patterned paper to mat and layer and decided to distress the edges instead.  The card is finished off with a sentiment off the computer, some paper flowers, pearls and a ribbon.


This card fits the following challenges:


Incy Wincy - Blast from the past
CRAFT - Birthday or celebration
Pixie Dust - Add a pearl to your card
Secret Crafter - No patterned paper
CD Sunday - Elegant ladies
Stampin' Sisters in Christ - Distressing.

What a unique and interesting card, that would be a challenge, just to randomly create a birthday card without direction. I do like it! Thank you for participating in the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge this week.
