My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

1 August 2010

A 50th Birthday Wish

My third and hopefully final post for today - this is a card I have made for my Best Friend who will be 50 in a few weeks time, she loves red and black - in fact her lounge is this colour, so thought the card would fit in well with the decor LOL! I've used one of my 8" x 8" cards.

I'm going to enter this into the following challenges:-

For this card I used:-

  • Miss Anya Stamp
  • Rachelle Anne Miller Greeting Stamp
  • PM Ivory Black Papers
  • Promarkers
  • PM Gems
  • Card from Stash using Sizzix Texture Plate - Lots of Love
  • Anita's Sparkly Peeloffs

Thanks for stopping by today and as always appreciate your comments. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
