Commissioned Birthday Card


Here is another of the cards I was asked to make for one of my customers.  The remit was a 60th birthday card for someone into animals/gardening etc.  I have used my Joanna Sheen Jayne Netley Mayhew CD again for this one and yet again I have used the same image as I did for a commissioned card a while back.  It's quite intricate to cut out as the layers print out over 3 sheets of A4 card but it's well worth it in the end.  To mount the image I have used some blue mirri card, a matching backing paper to the image and a light blue and dark blue abstract paper from Crafty Ann's as this matches the colours so well.  The card is finished off with a verse, sentiment off the computer, a flower/pin spray made by my fair hands and some card candy.

This card fits the following challenges:

Pocket Full of Posies - Winged things
A Crafty Little Place - Anything goes
Penny's Paper - Birthday
Crafty Calendar - Blue and the option of flowers
Daring Cardmakers - Saphhire
Our Creative Corner - Letters or numbers on project
Crafty Emma - Floral frenzy
CD Sunday - Animals
Pile it On - Pile on the layers.

Ah bring back spring I had a family of bluetits in my front bay tiles, still haven't worked out where the hole is that they got into and the noise drove hubby mad when he was trying to watch tv, it was fab watching them. Fab card and thanks for joining us at Penny's sure the recipient will love this.
