Layered Birthday Card

Hi Everyone,

Happy Leap Day! Hope you've had a great Monday. It's rainy and gloomy here, which is not a nice change after the lovely sunshine we had here last week... Oh well, all we can do is hope for some more sun! 

Today I am sharing a layered birthday card with you, which I was asked to make for a friend's mum - a 60th birthday does require a special celebration, doesn't it? I was asked to include a floral image, and not to make it too pink & girly - whilst still using SOME pinks, ha! Oh, and number 60 was meant to show on the card, but discretely enough. 

I hope you like what I created. The photos are not the best quality, and the Distress Ink blending is definitely better in reality than it is in the photos, but this is the best I could do with the current weather :o(

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
Crafty Friends - Floral
QKR Stampede - Birthday cards
I love ProMarkers - Use a number
Inky Chicks - Ribbon and/or lace

Have a great week,
