Some time ago a friend of mine asked me if I could make a card for his co-worker. And he had some additional requests as well: he wanted me to use an image that would look like his co-worker (if possible), write the number "40", use some tulips and also use an image of the cake somewhere on the card. I wasn't sure if I could fulfill his requests (especially the one about the image looking like his friend), but I knew I wanted to try and do my best. It was definitely a challenge.
I was most worried about finding the perfect image, but when I saw the photo of the birthday lady I knew I have the perfect image for the card. Later he told me that when the lady received the card her first words were "oh, that's me". :D So, score!
Here's the card I made...
The image I used is from Santoro. I coloured it to look like the birthday lady. :) Since this card was made some time ago I can't remember which image (from what company) I used for the cake. Sorry! I did the colouring wih pencils.
The gorgeous papers are from K&Co. I embellished the card with pearls and some gorgeous flowers from I am roses and from my stash.
So much for today. Have a lovely day! xx
