Commissioned Birthday Card


I was asked to make a commissioned card for a friend of my son for her mother.  I have used Joanna Sheen's Jayne Netley Mayhew CD and used this gorgeous decoupage.  It takes a while to cut out but it is well worth it.  I have used some backing papers from the CD and also some polished stone backing papers from Crafty Ann's Digi Store.  The card is finished off with a verse, die-cut flowers with brad centres, ribbon, pearl heart pins, sentiment off the computer and some pearls.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
