Card For A Special Person

Happy Wednesday everyone, I love Wednesdays cos it is my day off (although I have got to go to the hospital for an Endoscopy this afternoon so that's not too much fun).  This card was made at the request of my Aunty for her daughter's 50th birthday.  She didn't give me any brief so it took me ages to decide what to do (& especially what image to use, I've been looking at loads lol).  I find it's always harder making a card for someone special as you want it to be perfect (well not perfect but special - you know what I mean).  I decided on this cute image from Pollycraft & coloured it with Promarkers, I did go over the top with the Glamour Dust but my cousin is a real girly girl like me & loves all that sort of thing & so I used lace, ribbon, lots of flowers & a charm.  The papers were free from Computer Scrapbook & I finished of with some stamped, punched & glittered butterflies & some gems, a brad & a button & a made a matching box.
