50 and Fabulous

Good morning all.

I've been going through my photo files and found a few cards I didn't have time to blog when I was up to my eyes with wedding stationery. This one was made for my sister's 50th earlier this year.

Image was a magazine freebie (I think), stamped onto kraft card with the flowers coloured with promarkers. Dies from Spellbinders. Embossing folder was a magazine freebie. Backing paper from DCWV Linen Closet. Hanging tag from East India Company. Ribbons, gems and flowers from my stash. 
Decorated inside to match.

  10. Hi Carol I bet she loved receiving this little beauty I love both the use of the Kraft card, the paper and image it looks so lovely and natural. Carol just read your comment on my decoupaged card isn't it funny how many of us crafters started off with decoupage, I suppose because it was baby steps into the whole world of crafting.
