Celebration!

I was asked by a friend to make a card for her mum's 70th birthday incorporating a couple of photos of the lady herself. Here's what I came up with. The lovely papers were a pad of My Minds eye Quite Contrary Summer papers that came free on a magazine the other week,rather usable they are too!,I made a string of bunting as in this post and stamped the letters on using one of the 99p ish alphabets available at Scrapbook Sisters . I can't see them on line but I'm sure if you rang them they'd be able to point you in the right direction,they're lovely like that! The flowers were from my stash.


My friend was delighted with the card I'll show you the mini album that I also made for her at a later date.
I'm using this card for the following challenges:

Caardvarks July Challenge,Birthday cards
CWC013, Inspired by Summer,
I'm now off to tackle the ironing pile,
Thanks for stopping by,
