The Finished Card....Ta Da....!!

 Here's the finished product of the WOYWW showing!  As I said it's for my Aunt's 80th birthday.  There's no fear she'll see it on here as she doesn't use the 'interweb thingy'...!!  The image came from Di (as usual it seems - believe it or not I do have a few of my own stamps too!).

I made the little Happy Birthday sentiment by putting a rub on down on to a pearlised snippet I had in my stash, then put it through the paper crimper (bargain in the kiddies toy section!).  Added a small brad (which I'd coloured with nail varnish to suit the card better!) and used foam pads to give it some height.  This card is being hand delivered, so not postage costs to worry about!
The inside of the card shows the numbers in BIG letters, and as she wont' see this, she won't mind me showing you all.  I used my Distress Ink (this one is getting a lot of use, I'm nearly on my way to getting another colour too, so watch out for that one when I get it!).  I used my Nesties to cut the poem out and then distressed it, not perfectly, but with my hands, it's never going to be perfect!

More flowers from the bargain bin and some butterflies (again from Di) which I've added Frosted Lace stickles too.  It's nice and delicate for this type of card.  Took ages to dry though, I had them all along the window sill in different stages of drying!

It's absolutely gorgeous Karen - and the sentiment is lovely. Another stunner!

Thanks for the comments ladies! It took longer than normal to make this one as I've pulled a muscle in my back, it's healing, slowly. Hope to add more soon! Keep smiling!

Hi Karen
What a lovely card your Aunt will be thrilled to receive this and I am sure will treasure. Glad to hear the back is slowly improving and you are crafting again.
