Commissioned Birthday Card


I was asked to make a very plain card for a man who likes wild animals.  For this card I used the Joanna Sheen Jayne Netley Mayhew CD and used one of the shaped cards where the elephants trunks are joined together but popped it onto a bigger card.  I just did some simple matting and layering and added some fibres.  I am told that the recipient said it was their favourite birthday card.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Crafty sentiments - Animals
Card making Mamas - Animals
CD Sunday - Wild thing
One Stitch at a Time - Something for the boys
Everybody Art - happy birthday
Creative card Crew - Make something using no stamp.

Brilliant card Kym, I made it for my youngest's 10th wedding anniversary because they asked me to make an elephant tapestry for their wedding present
