OK on with the card...... this has taken me all week on and of...more off than on probably, but I started well and then it just didn't please me when I tried to finish it off. It sat on my desk and I kept going back to it and trying different things, and going back to it.....and so...sound familiar to anyone?
Here is the end result.....
and slightly to the side to see the depth
This is for my mum who is to be 94 in a weeks time.......she so loves watching the birds on the feeder so I thought this was quite suited to her.
It is an 8" x 8" (sorry old school) card and I covered it in a sheet of Craftwork Cards 'Cottage Garden' paper pad, then with another sheet the same I cut out all the four corners of flowers off and mounted them up and the same with bird house. I added a little bird cut from the botanical pad....also Craftwork Cards. Plenty of glamour dust was added for sparkle.
The white flowers (glittered of course) and Happy Birthday are both Memory Box dies and a daisy punch and left over card from the Happy birthday die made the flower..... and the final touch ...the bow.
I hope she likes it...she doesn't view my blog so I can keep it a surprise........so ssshhh don't tell her :)
I am quite pleased with it, I am my own worst critic and I somehow could not find a way to put MUM on the front of the card so that it looked right so I shall be sure to tell her how special she is inside!
Right that's it...hope the sun shines tomorrow, I am well fed up with the wet and cold. What does your weekend have in store for you? Me?...I am off across the M62 to Bolton...so see you there if you too are going.
Thank you for stopping by and sharing with me and a special thank you to all those people that leave me such lovely comments and as a result keep me blogging.......it is so much appreciated.
Take care my friends and enjoy your weekend.
