Blingy Big Birthday!

Had a busy couple of days but sat last night and finished a commissioned card.
Asked to make an easel card for a 30th Birthday, girly, pinky/bluey and blingy! Hope this fits the bill.

But what an absolute sod it was to photograph this morning - grey skies now after a couple of hours of sunshine - it was dry but very cold when we went for the walk earlier but now it's snowing!
And apart from anything else it does NOT make for taking decent pics -
But I think you'll get the general idea..

Pink Petticoat papers layered and stitched  onto pink bazzil.
The card had to be 'modern' and this image from Mo seemed to be the most suitable I had to use.

'Party Girl' was coloured with a mix of my favourite pastels and promarkers and cut out with a Nellie Snellen Die. I layered more pink behind it and stitched together.
The lace was from my stash as was the scrummy pink velvet ribbon and I threaded a little extra piece through a blingy buckle then added all the crystals and a couple of sparkly pins.

Finished with a PC generated sentiment, a few more blingy bits and some die cut corners.

Viv, what a great 30th BD card! Don'tcha hate the hardest part about cardmaking? -- taking the photos -- LOL they never really show the fullness of the card, or all the special details. Your coloring and shading is so pretty, and all the bling makes it extra special! Wonderful card! hugs, de

Hi Viv

Now that I've stopped laughing about you telling me a MILLION times not to exaggerate I hopped by only to find I'd missed this gorgeous card. It's absolutely perfect for the 'brief' - super image and so many lovely extras. Love all the bling, a great card all round (or should that be all square?). Hugs, Di xx
