50th Birthday

Hi,
A mid week post from me, now that is unusual AND it`s something a bit different to what I`ve been doing recently.

I was asked to make a card for a friends 50th birthday from her husband with a request for Tinkerbell, glitter , pink and flowers.
I know she loves all things shabby chic, `cos she`s constantly bombarding my FB newsfeed with shabby pics, and she loves diamonte or real diamonds if she could afford them lol.
This is what I came up with,

The BG papers are from Pink Petticoat ( Swiss Dots and Vintage Roses)
I found a Tinkerbell image online and glittered her wings and pom poms with Glamour Dust. She`s cut out with a SB Floral Oval die.
The flowers are mainly from Wild Orchid Crafts with a couple from a local store.
The pink twirly stem is also WOC.

The leaves are from a Memory Box die  ( Botanical Stem) cut from pale green vellum
The sentiment is PC generated and I`ve curled the banner shape slightly to give it some depth.
The numbers I`m really pleased with.
I tried using white glitter card but they just got lost against all the pink so I tried sponging them with distress ink but it didn`t look right. I don`t have any sugar pink glitter card and was at a bit of a loss but then came up with this.
I laid some double sided tape onto pale pink card and leaving the backing on I cut out the numbers ( so the sticky is on the front) then removed the backing and carefully placed the tiny gems on.
I know you can buy these numbers ready made but I couldn`t be bothered traipsing about looking just for this one card. I`m dead chuffed how they`ve worked out and it didn`t take as long as I thought it would.

I have to deliver it to her hubby this week so I hope it meets the remit. I know she doesn`t read my blog so I`m safe there.

Edited to add, I`ve just realised that I can enter my card into this weeks In the Pink Challenge

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
