Gardener's World - 80th Birthday Card

This is a recent commission card and fairly new territory for me. i.e. CD crafting. I used the 'From the Heart of the Garden' CD by Jane Shasky (from Joanna Sheen) and printed out various papers, toppers and sentiments. I probably have enough left to make another two cards.

I used Centura Pearl in a taupe/pale coffee shade for the base card. The miniature flower pots were cut in half before attaching to the sentiment. I think they were from Hobbycraft.

Inside of card - the Sun charm was included in an assorted pack from Bunny Zoe's Crafts and tied on to some knotted raffia. The photo I took of the right-hand side didn't come out at all which is a shame because my DH had made a miniature fork and trowel to stand in another mini terracotta pot to decorate the greeting/dedication section.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

  1. Hi Louise

    This is amazing.

    I love the shape very much as it has given you plenty of space to decorate the inside.

    Those images and your layout are brilliant with the perfect embellishments.

    I bet your customer and the recipient were well pleased with your creation

    Have a good Easter break.

    Love Jules xx
