50th Birthday Card

Well that's Christmas done and dusted for another year ... we had a lovely family day down in Mum's, a gorgeous dinner and lots of lovely pressies too :)
Today has been super lazy ... such a cold day with snow showers and now it looks like it's all gonna freeze Brrrr! I'm so glad to be in my new Christmas PJ's and cosy socks ;)

This card was a quickie make, I always find it strange to get into regular card making mode with no snowmen or snowflakes LOL
My image is an old Lili of the Valley one - coloured with watercolour pencils.  I think I might treat myself to a few more of these in lieu of any crafty loveliness from Santa (Boooo to Santa) - I love how they colour and find it really easy to get effects of shade.

Layout from CAS(E) this Sketch #104
