PRETTY IN PINK 80th BIRTHDAY CARD

Good morning to all you talented, and craft loving
blog friends and visitors.
I know I say this most days when I post my creations, but may I say a really big THANK YOU for all your support and time you spend
visiting my blog and making such wonderful comments.

We have has some beautiful sunshine for the last
few days, but that wind is still a tad cold too.
On Tuesday I actually sat in the garden and had
my breakfast, because it was so glorious.
The plants are beginning to grow quite nicely now.

Today I have a 80th Birthday card to share with
you for my friend who used to organize my little
ladies club with me.
Later today I will make the box to go with it.
The card I used is a very deep bright pink, but it
looks almost red in the picture.

Now the inside.


This card is an 8x8 size.
I have used the Cupcake CD Floral Delights for
the paper I used to die cut the flowers and corners.
This was printed on inkjet Shimmer White Decoupage Paper which is very pearlised, but it doesn't show on the photo.
I decided to cover part of the corners with the paper too, as it was so pretty.
I cut out a SB grand circle and then I cut out the
center with the Di-namics Dizzy Doily die and 
replaced it back on foam pads.
I also cut one out of the paper too and added it to the top of that.
I added some AB pearls I just purchased, and some pearls on a string from my stash.

Well that's all for today folks will be looking at what you have created later today.
Thank you again for sparing your time to visit me.
I do hope you all enjoy your Thursday.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Very pretty Jenny, so much to look at and admire...love the flowers.
You asked me once if I am organized or sit in my craft room all day, haha, I wish, but I am organized which comes from my nursing. I sit with dad most hours of the day and colour my images and make the card/s up after dinner. I also have many in advance for DT so thought you'd like to know....luv annie xx
