Retro Ladies Birthday Card

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
 
A card for another work colleague, who loves the retro flapper ladies, spent ages looking for images and finally found this one, she loved it :) phew!!!!!!!!!!!! so pleased as I was not sure about it myself.


This is another  8 x 8 inch card, made with space for all those work signatures.


Base colour and contrast is black.  With those gorgeous GCD Studio papers " Paris Night".  The edges of the top to panels edged with the MS heart punch and wrapped in red and gold ribbon to create lovely bows on each side.  The lace frames the image plate and the roses covered in stickles adorn the base of the card.  The sentiment sits on a nestie tag.

Now wondering where the sparkle and bling is the whole of this image is coloured in Atyou glitter pens to sparkle, however you cannot see much of it on this photos sorry.

As always, I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors and followers for the lovely and inspirational comments you leave, which allows me to hop on over in return to see your own lovely work and welcome to my new followers. 

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges

Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
Patties Creations - Birthdays
Raise the Bar - Birthdays
Crafts and Me - Reds
