Old bird...

This card was made for yet another Trimcraft challenge, to make something to mark a milestone birthday, and since I am the only person I know who has one coming up (next week), I made this card for MEEEEEE!!! lol ;o)

Number templates: Produced using Wordart

Papers: 'The Funky One' CD-rom from Funky Hand

Butterfly: Made from stamping two butterflies onto acetate with black Stazon, and colouring with Sakura Stardust pens and pink glitter, then layered ontop of each other, with some bend in the wings.
Antennae are silver wire and beads.

Pin: Glass-headed dressmaker's pin with two Swarovski crystal beads glued on to cover the sharp end

Blossoms, brads and ric-rac from stash


  1. What a fabulous card - you never fail to amaze me and hey you can't be reaching the big one - you don't look at a day over 40....

  2. I love looking at the older cd's - very inspiring! And I love the way you've used these colours - I'd have never thought of them that way!

    The Westie card - you inspired me so much that I made one with a Westie on last night - will post a pic at some point!

  3. so what age are you really then twenty what???? Love everything about the card

  4. On the count-down now, 5 days to go!!!! This is a great card, love the Funky Hand Papers, you have made great use of them.
