Today I'm sharing a card I made for my lovely daughter Emma... it was her birthday yesterday and we had birthday cake - yes...... believe it or not, handmade by me! It's a while since I did much baking...... M&S is just so much easier to go buy something!
Back to the card..... this was a bit of a labour of love. I'd seen a gorgeous card by Faye using these balloon flower images a while back.. and had logged the idea to use. I didn't have the die for the flowers, so each had to be coloured then fussy cut! Eeek!! Then the diecut letters.... each had to be diecut three times and layered one of top of the other to give some depth to the letters.. so you can imagine how long it took me and how glue-y I got!
I wanted to personalise the colours too - Emma her loves purples, lilacs and aquas... so that's what I chose. I did struggle on how to design the card when I had all the bits together..... I think I got a bit too close to it as I really did struggle then!
