50th Birthday - Gillian

Afternoon peeps.  A lady from my apartment block asked me to make a card for her Daughter's 50th Birthday.  For once she didn't give me strange things to portray as the other residents have in the past. So this one was a joy to make.  It could be pretty but she doesn't like cute.

A5 Landscape Easel Card


Products Used

Digi Image:- Gone with the Wind1 - Digi Doodle Shop - Sadly just closed down
Promarkers
DI
Cardstock:- Cappuccino Shimmer
                    Caramel Linen - Limetree Craft
Dp's :- The Mariposa Stack - DCWV -( Bottom piece is glittered.)
Dies:- Italian Flourish - DL103 - Cheery Lynn Designs - (Has been coloured with Promarkers)
          Circle Swirl - LR0119
          Leaves from English Rose die set - LR0162 - Marianne Designs
          Squares - S4-006
          Classic Scalloped Squares Large - S4-127 - Spellbinders
Flowers:- The Hobby House
Lace from my stash.

I haven't made the box yet, I will try to do it from the same card as the matt and layering if size allows.

Thank you for looking and I hope the weather is as lovely where you are as here, it is GORGEOUS!!!
