Commissioned Birthday Card



Yet again I was asked to make a birthday card for where my son works for a lady for next week.  I used my new My Craft Studio Festive Deco Follies CD but picked an image that didn't jump out and say Christmas.  The image has been decoupaged and layered up onto black and a backing paper from the CD.  The inserts inside the card are the same image but the opacity was taken down to 15%.  The back of the card has the same image but at 25% with the verse printed on the front.  As per usual I had to do a decorated envelope - I did it for the first card I made for them and the trend has had to be followed!!!  The A4 card is finished off with some feathers, ribbon, sentiment off the computer, peel-offs and lots and lots of gems.

This card fits the following challenges:

Fussy and fancy Friday - Pink and black
Allsorts - Dressing up
CD Sunday - Anything goes
One Stitch at a Time - Sketch or pink or both
Crafty Angels - Something old, something new - "old" is the feathers as I've had them for ages and ages and "new" is the My Craft Studio Festive Deco Follies CD
Lollipop Crafts - Anything goes
Creative Card Crew - Cute and girly
Party Time Tuesday - Summer birthday
Tuesday Taggers - Lots of lovely black.
