Happy Birthday Marg.

This is my second post today. For my Less is More card please scroll down.

I was asked by a work collegue to make an 80th birthday card for an aunt.. After all the CAS cards I have been making lately I couldn`t wait to get the ribbon and lace out.

I have used the same papers from The Shabby Princess as I did on a previous post mainly because they are gorgeous and were perfect for the ribbon and flowers.

The ribbon is fabulous and sparkly but is a pig to make a decent bow with, I think it took longer to tie that than it took to make the rest of the card. Anyway I`m pleased with the end result. I just hope Auntie Marg is too.

The ribbon is from Boyes.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and my stash.

Well we had a brief glimpse of spring the other day and my forsythia is bursting into bloom so that must be a good sign. The down side is that it shows the dust in the house. Sooo with that in mind I`ve actually started spring cleaning. Not that I`ve got far... I`ve managed to clean the windows and all the paintwork but then the craftroom called and I had to answer, as you do. I`m sure the muck will still be there tomorrow.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  13. very pretty card, and a nice "relief" from the weekly challenge we all love at LIM.
    When I have had enough of less is more I reach for the grunge and make what hubby calls "dirty cards" (Lol if only he knew about little Timmy Holtz ;-0), you go for the lace, pink ribbons and bling - and you do it so well x

  14. What pretty ribbons, and lace and papers! Lovely card Lynne!

  15. Ooh that's lovely! I love what you've done with the flowers.
    Hugs, Sandra

  16. Gorgeous, the flowers and your ribbon are wonderful. I especially think its cool that you were able to personalize it with her name. Awesome.
