My sister turns 40

Linda turns 40 My sister turned 40 last year. It has taken me 3 months to show her card, so my new years resolution is definitely going to be “To Blog More Frequently”.

It took me a little while to get this card how I liked it, and I have to admit that when my husband and I boarded the plan to travel interstate for her party, I left it behind. Not my best move.

There are lots going on in terms of elements and style. Big Shot Alphabet and Leaves Dies. Multiple punches (Big Flower, Little Flower, Oval, Scalloped Oval and Scalloped Edge), paper piecing and cut outs, watercolouring, embossing, embellishments (such as brads, pearls, ribbon, felt flowers), glitter, DSP and all put together on a trishutter card.

You can probably find a few other different techniques if you look closely.

Even though the DSP has retired, you can get the same pattern but in a different colour. The new one is called Sunny Garden.

I have used stamp images from multiple sets including Cottage Garden, Occasional Quotes, and Cheers to You.

Hope you like it as much as I do.
