Happy 50th birthday to Gail


My friend and colleague Gail is 50 today, so I made her this card and gave it to her during the week. I believe she likes fairly traditional colours such as red, gold and green so tried to incorporate them into the design.

I used:
Main Image - Inkadinkado "Tulip Collage" coloured with Cosmic Shimmer paints and twinkling H2O's
Greeting - Hero Arts
Flowers - Prima
Jewel brads - Making Memories
Die cut numbers - Cuttlebug "Hippie Chick" alphabet.

Hope she has a lovely day!

PS. I have also noticed that this card falls in perfectly with 2 challenges that are on the go this week: Daring Cardmakers and My Time to Craft Challenge (# 22) are both for "numbers" cards - so here we are :-)

  8. Your cards are beautiful, but I loved, loved, loved that 50th birthday one. I'm so glad you mentioned where you got the alphabet die cuts. I've been looking for a set and I thoroughly liked that choice.

    Thank you sharing your lovely work.

    Blessings,
