A very pretty card which your daughter in law will love. I arely ever do 8x8 except for something special, but it gives much more room, so perhaps I should think again. Enjoy your day Jenny. Christine xx

Morning Jenny, Such a gorgeous card, I love the pinks and purples together, they are my colours. Jenny you pay as much attention to the inside as the front of the card, simply beautiful. Bet your daughter in law absolutely loved it. I find it hard, with close relations birthdays, to 'top' the one I made the year before ha ha. Have a lovely weekend. Lots of love from Patricia xx

Patricia Howarth said...

Whoohoo Jenny, Just noticed the butterflies, they are stupendous, missed them on the way down, too enthralled in your card and how you had made it. Christine Emberson will love those when she visits. lots of love from Patricia (2) xx

Hi Jenny - this is really beautiful and I love the image you have used. It made me smile because I did that to my Nan's flowers when I was about 5 .... or was that 25??. oops! Especially love the flowers and twirlies. I rarely do the inside of my cards - unless they are boxed that is. Your daughter-i-l is going to adore it.

Hugs to you Sue P xxx
