Happy BIG Birthday

Happy Birthday to a very special person!

A BIG Birthday deserves a special card,
so here's what I made

I rarely do big cards, this is 8" x 8"

With a LOT of layers,
whisper white, blackberry bliss and brushed gold

I coloured in all the detail using some old glittery pens,
and decoupaged some elements

This is the inside....I was aiming for a 'square',
but this is how it turned out,
added a few random butterflies.
You may notice I've added 'sister' inside.....well my sis's are my friends too,
so artistic licence, plus I love the sentiment and 
didn't want to spoil the front!

Then because it was so bulky, especially with the double coordinating ribbon,
I had to make a box.....that'll teach me to go OTT!!!!

Let's hope she liked it, coz it took nearly a day to make!
I did enjoy it though, and was quietly pleased...
wish you could see it in real life....

By the way, stamp set Fabulous You retired,
AND I had to borrow it from one of my lovely friends!


  1. Stunning card there Lesley! It's one of my fave stamp sets and you used it beautifully :-)

  2. I agree with Di . . . it's a stunner and I'm sure your Sis was delighted with it.

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  3. This is really cool! I love that giant double ribbon bow and the inside frame stamping is wonderful!


Thanks for visiting! I love to read your comments, and I will do my best to visit you too xxx
