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
