70th Birthday Card

I have had a nightmare with my blog in the last couple of days. I deleted photos from my phone and little did I know I would delete my photos from my blog!!

I have had to crack on with some cards today because I have birthdays coming up as well as Christmas.

This card is a little out of my comfort zone but my Mother-in-law is 70 on Sunday and this is her favourite colour and she loves butterflies.


I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with a turquoise?? and white embossed card. I embossed the white card with a Xcut embossing folder.  I have used Creative Expressions Gilding Polish to enhance the embossing. I have used a set by Sue Wilson to cut the frames. I have used a Presscut nesting set of ovals for the sentiment. I have cut the numbers using Tattered Lace dies. I have used Lea'bilites dies to cut the flowers, I have used an embellishment from Chloe Creative Cards to complete the flower. I have completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops.
