Happy Birthday Mum (commission)

hello everyone!! Hope you are all enjoying a very chilly but sunny Saturday. Well it is here in Northumberland!! A very Autumnal day - my fave time of year.

Thanks for all the previous comments and hello to any new followers who have recently joined my blog. 
Here is today's card. I hope you like it!!
This request was for anything cute. So I opted for a fave of lots of people Forever Friends bear. 
Here I have printed out the image from the triple CD that was on sale about 2 years ago. 
I have used one of the background papers and printed it directly on the base card itself using a lower transparency. the font was printed at the same time direct from the PC using a font called Starbabe Hmk. Its pretty similar to the one on the CD.


The pink matt was also one the backing papers from the CD but I printed it out onto cardstock. 

I added glue and lots of glamour dust to the nets in the window for extra sparkle and tiny gems to the flowers in the window box. I then added glossy accents to the flowers to add a bit of dimension.

here is a close up of the image itself -

and another one so you can see the glitter on the window nets.

hope you like today's card. Do you think the nets look okay?
any comments good or bad are more than welcome

take care until next time we meet
