The best is yet to be

Saturday, 21 May 2011

I made this a while ago cos needed to make a card for my friend whose birthday is next week, “why?” I hear you say. Well I bought her a ticket for a concert/festival which is two days after the big day, and I thought she’d need a bit of time to get used to the idea and build up the excitement!!

I used a Sugar Nellie/Leanne Ellis stamp “Dreamer” coloured with...copics! I gave her nice red hair cos my friend has nice red hair! I blinged up her wings with some glamour dust.

Photobucket

I cut out some scalloped circles to make flowers and put a jewel cluster in the centre. The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up! and is on a Tim Holtz ticket.

Now for the inside!!! I took a gold envelope and adjusted it to fit the card and attached another scalloped circle flower to hold the envelope closed.

And what is in the mystery envelope?? (much excitement!!!)
