Happy 40th Birthday

hello friend
wow. a huge thank you for all the kind comments you left me recently. much appreciate them all.

today's card is another commission card for Jenny a tattoo client of ours. Jenny doesn't like fussy cards or too many flowers but loves butterflies. I did this card with a very kind donated butterfly from Tikvah on docrafts. This was included with some of the crosses that Anne sent me about a month ago for the holy communion card. thanks very much Anne.

I simply added sparkly gemstones to the main body of the butterfly and stuck it onto an embossed circle done with my trusty Cuttlebug using a folder which has swirls and birds on it called funnily enough Birds and Swirls!!
I simply matted this onto a Spellbinders die cut scalloped circle in lilac cardstock.

The wording was done direct onto the base card itself using a font called Baskerville Old Face. Jenny's name was done in Brock script.
I do hope Jenny likes it as the inside has a surprise for her. A picture of her when she was much younger with Gotcha written too. this was her Mam's idea to make her laugh! I hope it works!

thanks for dropping by today and I would love to read some comments from you.

hugs to you all until next time
