Crafty CardMakers 42 - Special Birthdays

The wonderful Joanna Sheen is our sponsor for this week's challenge at Crafty CardMakers which, I forsee to be a humongous one as it is 'Special Birthdays' - a perennial favourite! 

Our fab teamie Melly came up with this one - I'll get you for that later Mel - and I've made mine for my super Aunt Marie who, when I said about it being a 'special' birthday this year, gave me a look and said 'at my age, child, every birthday is somewhat special...!'

Y'know, I feel a new digi character coming on! Between my crazy Mum and my autocratic Aunt, I think I have to 'find' a character for their words!

For my card I've used a DL sized card and pinched a bit of my William Morris wallpaper for the background paper.  I used a Glitter Girls panel to emboss the pearlescent green card and the blue/grey card and 'fudged' the gold mirri beneath.

I then positioned the Prima blooms onto a measure of Pinflair glue gel along with the rose leaves.

Before I give it to her I will make a matching box for it as an envelope won't do for this 'special' lady!

Hope you like it!
