Birthdays and blessings

The card I have to share with you tonight is one I created for my mother-in-law, she celebrated her birthday yesterday and loves old images , so I pulled out the gorgeous vintage toppers Tracy recently sent me and based the card around this oh-so-sweet cherub.

I chose Melissa Frances papers and lots of flowers to finish the card off.

The verse is one downloaded from the internet.

Isn't that topper just the sweetest thing ! You can purchase this and many more from Tracy's online shop Cardmakers Delights HERE

Next up I have something a little out of the ordinary ( for me anyway)

I was recently asked by one of my friends if I could produce something as a gift for a bride and groom. Her daughter wanted to present the happy couple with the speech she made at their wedding.  My only constraints were to make it A4 in size and I was given a photo of the wedding as a guide for the colours.

The bride wore cadbury's purple and carried a bouquet of red roses ( and I must add looked like a model - totally stunning)

So I kept it very simple and classic and just added in the colours subtly with the flowers and the ribbon.

I hope they like it !

And now I am going to have another little play with those toppers as they are sat here on my desk just begging to be added to some more cards.
