80th Birthday card

Ha, I don't know what I'm gonna do when I run out of this Lili of the Valley DP ... I think it's been the best used pad I've ever bought!
Anyway, this is a special request card - I was asked to maybe make something with books or travel or the Carribbean if I could and if not, not to worry.  So I pulled out all my stamps, had a play, evenutally chucked my efforts in the bin and went back to my fail-safe Whipper Snapper flowers!
Coloured with watercolour pencils and popped up on dimensionals.
Spectrum Noir sparkle added to the flowers, and clear gloss to the jar.

I kinda got carried away with my faux stitching ... the gingham strip looked better without it, but hey, can't turn back time!

A beautiful card, so delicate. Those papers are gorgeous, I was sad too when they stopped doing the papers. I think the faux stitching looks great, I'm guilty of getting carried away with it too, but you've pulled it off! Cara x
