Bit of a story book card!




I get a commission from this girl a few times a year and each time she asks for an enormous amount of information to be put on the card! Can be quite daunting but at least it allowed me to involve a lot of challenges lol. This is for her sister who is going to be 50, she wanted her birth details, including the names of doc and nurse! she wanted to mention Mario Lanza who died the day she was born, she wanted something about Simon Cowell and Gone with the wind! A tall order or what. I forgot to photo the last page which showed a pic of the house at Tara from gone with the wind and a big party sign on it.
Papers are Brenda Pinnick, flowers where cut on my cricut and coloured with promarkers and copics. The challenges covered are;
1.Just Magnolia - make your own flowers and magnolia image
2.Saturday Challenge - A celebration
3. Crazy4Challenges - stitching
4.Passion for Promarkers - 3 shapes, 2 papers and 1 ribbon
5. Creative card Crew - Its a celebration!

That sort of commission would scare me to pieces! I love how you have done it though. I would probably move house so she wouldn't find me next year. LOL
