Challenge for a birthday

Hi Guys,

Well, I've been crafting up a storm getting ready for my work 'Christmas Shop'. Each year I take a bunch of handcrafted goodies (papercraft, body products candles, Christmas earrings) for my workmates to buy. I have, however, also needed to make some birthday cards. I haven't had time to even think much about Christmas cards!.

My friend Kaz (who I know as she is my cousin's BFF) invited me to her 40th and renewal of her wedding vows. It was a fun evening, they had a black and white theme.

I used the CAS(E) this Sketch #6 as the layout for my card.

As Kaz was born in the 70's, and thus an 80's girl, I decided to use this stamp set from MFT.

I love the colours, the paper is retired SU DSP. I used a mix of copics & SU markers for my colouring. I used SU dies for the numbers and blinded them up with SU's Dazzling Details.

I also decided to make a vow-renewal card. This had me at a bit of a loss for a while, til I saw this card that I had saved on Pinterest. This is a mix of PTI stamps & SU paper. I figured that they were a great match.

Kaz said that she was really happy with the cards. Nice to have handcrafts appreciated.

Have a fab week,

Fi x
