This is a card I have just finished for my sister to give her partners daughter. She is 30 in a couple of weeks. We are all off to her Birthday Bash on the 24th where I am told the order of the evening will also include old fashioned ‘Party Games’ – sounds like it could be fun! It has been shall I say a number of years since I played ‘Pass the Parcel’ and ‘Musical Chairs’ and so on. I will report back after the event.
The papers are from Tim Holtz ‘Vintage Shabby’ paper stack. This pad is absolutely scrummy. I have kept all of the papers ( which are more like a light weight card really) in the grey tones and just added the colour with the butterfly. Of course there had to be a butterfly somewhere!
The centre of the flower was made with folded scalloped edge circles. MMMM might have to include this in one of my classes. The outside petals where cut from a template I made and layered with the ends of the petals curled in towards the centre of the flower and the whole thing secured with a clear diamante brad through a silver tone flower embellishment.
Thanks for stopping by.
