Birthday's Deserve Something Special

My daughter turned 24 today, the thought still makes me shiver, where have all these years gone.  So I got to making her something special for her birthday and what else would I use but all of my favourite products.

I used Distress Ink, Stampin Up, Stampotique and Tim Holtz all on this card.  Moth Fab herself I used my favourite Inktense watercolour pencils from Derwent and two skin tone one's from Faber Castell.  I added some stars using a stencil from Tim Holtz later after I had taken this photo.  I thought it needed them and both Mothy and my daughter deserve to have stars alongside them.

Next I used my Sizzix Eclips and my rolled flower bigz die and made a handbag card, well you know how much I love my handbags.  I used my Martha Stewart score pad with the envelope extra to make the envelope.  As expected she was hoping there would be money inside but just a token for a hug lol. I have a lot of bits n bobs in my stash so had lots of pearl beads and adhered them into the roses.  I then used two jewellery findings with ball endings and used pliers to bend the wire to simulate an old fashioned clasp.  Lots of fun and something pretty and special.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoy these cards.

Take care of u.

  1. Happy birthday to your daughter. The card and handbag are both gorgeous and I'm sure she loved them! And they grow up far too fast, don't they? My youngest will be starting high school after the summer, even though it feels like I only left high school myself a couple of years ago! Feel so old now! lol. x
