A very special person and a very special card...

This morning I am sharing with you the card that I have made for my mums friend who celebrated a very special birthday this week...
I will be honest and say that we have not seen eachother as often as we should in many years, but over the Easter holidays her daughters and I surprised her when we turned up for lunch so that she could meet my boys (should have done it years ago)
Anyway we will not lose touch now and I imagine that there will be many more lunch dates in the years to come - even if only to show some more VERY embarrassing pictures as we were all growing up! hehe

Happy Birthday Margaret!

So on to the card!
I decided that I would used the glass glitter which is something that I purchased ages ago and have not used... I PVA'd the numbers all over and threw the glass glitter over the top and left it to dry... This enabled me to fill in any gaps that were showing... Again leaving the glue to dry...

Once I had finished this I mounted the numbers on to a craft panel where I attached ribbon. I added a brad to the bottom right hand side. I then mounted this onto card stock and then the card blank on which I inked the edges...

I hope you like my card and thank you for looking. Your comments are much appreciated.
