70th Birthday Card


I was asked by my MIL to make a card for her friend's 70th Birthday, this is actually quite a rarity as she usually buys all her cards & luckily it was nearly finished when she was chasing it up today (even though it's only been a week & she wanted it in 2 weeks lol) bless her.  I DID manage to finish it this afternoon & even made a box for it  :)  I used my Crafter's Companion triple CD collection (floral) & added some lace & a computer generated greeting.  To make the sunflowers I punched some daisies, coloured them with ProMarkers & added some card candy that I coloured brown & sprinkled with Glamour Dust.  I hope you're all having a great weekend, we've just been shopping, hubby played footy this afternoon while I was crafting :)  


I'm entering this card for these challenges:
Crafter's Companion News Blog Birthday - Birthday Card (they are 5 not 70!)
ABC - F is for Flowers
Pile it On - Things in Threes
Papertake - 3 of a Kind
Alphabet - Y is for Yellow

Hello Tracey with an "e"! I just love, love how you did this little bear! HE is so cute. Is that a Popcorn the Bear stamp? It looks like it, but you had said you punched out the sunflowers. Whatever it is, it's adorable and I love how you stacked it.
