Shaped 40th birthday

Hello everyone :o)

Here's a card I made for an order.  I was asked for ivory, black and gold, and flowers... I possibly went a bit overboard with the flowers!


I created and cut the 40 shaped card using my Silhouette Cameo... the flowers were cut on the Cameo too.

Items Used
Ivory, cream & black linen card - Papermill Direct
Gold pearl card - Anna Marie Designs
MFT Die-namics Leaf-Filled Flourish - Craft Mojo
Leaves sprayed with Gold Spray & Sparkle
Frantage in Shabby White
Family Sentiment Tags - LOTV
Pearls from my stash
Hero Arts ink pad in Gold (sponged around edges) - Craft Mojo

I've had a lovely day with my boys at home, as the teachers are on strike... and there's only one more week until the summer holidays, can't wait!

Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

Simply stunning and love how you have decorated it.

So pleased to hear Morgan got into the school he wanted, only Alan my OH was asking me the other day, as i had mentioned it to him, when we drove through Sheffield on our way to Castleford (to see his dad).

Today i've taken H to see 'How To Train Your Dragon 2' and he loved it, so an expensive strike day :-), Luv Sam x
