This freebie image fromBroken Box Stockmade me smile and I hoped it wouldn't be too long before I got round to using it.
When I got an order for a 40th Birthday card I thought it would fit perfectly. The image comes with a sentiment that say's TGIF (Thank God I'm Fabulous!) but I opted to make my own sentiment to fit in with the age.
Easel cards seem very popular with the ladies at the bowls club and I confess to enjoying making them!
Once again I used a flower made by Maureen and the purple pearly topped hat pin was a present from Maureen too (I think she's been having another clear out!!!LOL).
The starry paper and the striped paper were both matted onto purple DCWV cardstock and stitched together. I coloured the image with promarkers and added some liquid pearls for the bracelets. The flourishes were coloured with 'Orchid' and a bit of glitter rubbed over it for some bling. Lilac organza ribbon from my stash.
(Anyone any tips (apart from using pinking scissors) to stop organza fraying please?)
I made a white box to protect the card and just added some of the paper and an organza bow to the box top to tie it all together.
