Inspirational Card Sketches and A Spoonful of Sugar



This card is for a 90year old's birthday, she loves to bake. I followed the lovely sketch over at Inspirational Card Sketches, uses a lovely image from Mo called Mummu's Nissu! It is just beautiful to colour and I used my pms to do so. The papers are from K&Co along with large letters, ribbons from stash which I stapled on. This picture opens up to reveal over things about the recipient. I used my MS border punch to give a nice edge. I used colour box petal ink to distress the edges which covers the challenge over at A Spoonful of Sugar.
