Happy and bright

Hello everybody! Happy card making day! :) I hope you managed to do some crafting today.

I did some baking in the morning (yum, yum), then went to my parents for lunch and in the afternoon I finished a card I started working on yesterday. But I won't show you that one today. Today I have another card to show you ...

A while back a friend of mine asked me to make a card for her friend's birthday. Since this card was for an older lady I didn't want to go all cute, but I went for a feminine look with pastel colours. I had those gorgeous papers in my stash and I thought they would be perfect for what I had in mind.


Of course there had to be lots of flowers and butterflies included. And lace and pearls and glitter. Those are a few of my favourite things. ;) The crochet flower was a gift from one of my crafty friends and the big yellow flower I put on top of it is from K&Company. All the other flowers are from my stash. And so are the doily, pearls, ribbon and lace.I used Whimsy die for the corners and decorative border was done with my punch.


Butterflies were stamped on a piece of white cardstock and coloured with Promarkers and Faber Castell pencils. After they were coloured I covered them with glitter glue. Embossing was done with Cottage floral embossing folder from Craft concepts.

I was told that the lady this card was for loved it, which is great! :)

Have a wonderful day! xx
