Rebecca's 30th Birthday Commissioned Card

Afternoon peeps.  The weather can not make it's mind up here today.  The sun is trying it's best to come out but isn't very successful at the moment.  Hope it is better where you are.

My card today is a commissioned one from one of the ladies here in my apartment block.  I made one for her Daughter's 60th and her Son in Law's 60th birthday's last year so this year she has asked me to make one for her Granddaughter's 30th.  The same as her Daughter's last year the instructions were not pretty, so no ribbon/lace/flowers or butterflies.  The only things I was told about the subject was that the Granddaughter is a Radiologist , has travelled and was at one time a radiologist in Australia.  At the moment she is a Radiologist here in Hertfordshire.
