Today I'm here with a card I have made for my Mum to give to a colleague of hers who is retiring in a few weeks. Hopefully she'll like this one first time round, unlike the last one she had me make - twice! Love her ;) (Good job I do! Of course :))
I used this weeks Muse card by Marion Vagg as my inspiration and this is what I came up with...
I think this is probably the busiest card I've made in a long while! I was inspired by the tag and the flower of Marion's card and it just sort of grew from there. I wanted to make a patterned background like Marion did so the emboss resist came out :) The background was embossed using WOW's Clear Hologram embossing powder which gives it a lovely purple/blue sparkle in real life...I don't know if you can see it in the picture below?
Here is Marion's card...
I hope that Mum likes this card, and her friend of course...but let's be honest, we all want our Mum's to be proud above all ;)
Thank you for stopping by! ;)
