A special request


Well, here I am, back for the third time this week! Now I'm just being an over achiever, lol!

I had special request from a friend this week to make a 60th birthday card for her Mum. So here I am today to share what I came up with for her.

I used one of my new favourite stamp sets that I got from my Mum recently called Notably Ornate from Stampin' Up! 

The papers are from the Prima 6x6 paper stack called  Melody Collection. I used Chocolate Chip ink (SU) to distress the edges.
I used Chocolate Chip cardstock (SU) for the the card base and also for the numbers and swirls.

The numbers are from a Sizzlits Die called Timeless Type and Alphabet Jr and the swirls are from a Sizzix Die called Scribbles Swirls that my friend Shannean gave me as she had two of them. Thanks Shannean!!

Faux stitching is drawn with a Chocolate Chip Stampin' Up! Marker.

I gave the whole card a spritz of glimmer mist just to snaz it up a bit.

I would like to enter my card in to the following challenges:

Craft Us Crazy - Anything Goes

Don't forget that the Make It Monday linky party is currently open. Come on over and check out all the amazing entries linked up so far and share with us what you have been creating.

Thanks for stopping by today.
