My Fair Lady... blue.

Tomorrow is Mum's birthday and she loves the colour blue so when I saw this decoupage I knew it would be perfect for her birthday card.
The design sheet is by Kanban and so is the background card but I wanted to 'pretty it up' a bit.

The edge of the backing card was punched with the Martha Stewart doily border punch and I followed this through on the inserts. The decoupage topper matt had a silver swirl design so I used some silver border peel-offs inside along with some gold ones as the ribbon I had was edged with gold.
The bottom corner was blinged-up with some roses and ribbons as I wanted to add more dimension to the card. I must admit, I've seen so many pretty cards lately with beautiful flower sprays on them that I felt I had to do something similar on Mum's card,

The flowers already had crystal glitter on them so they are really sparkly...I added some flat-backed pearls to the ribbon.

Materials used: -

Kanban - My Fair Lady A5 Decoupage in Blue
Prima Flowers
Anita's Festive ribbon
Crystal Stickers - pearls
Gold & Silver border peel-offs
Pinflair glue

I hope she likes it.........................
