90th Birthday Cards (Swing Card and Bugaboo)

Here is the swing card I made in my last post to which I have added some roses. This was a suggestion from Kylie over at Kylie's Craft Corner. Thanks Kylie, I was so happy that I actually had these coloured roses in my collection and it just finishes the card off nicely.

Now my friend that requested a card for her 90 year old Grandmother is so full of life and fun. I thought that maybe she would like a card that was a bit less Grandmotherly. Thought this was a wonderful excuse to buy a Bugaboo image that I see Cheryl over at My Cardmaking Haven playing with all all the time. Bugaboo have such fun images I did buy two and I am sure I will return in the future.

I think this is a really fun card. I have used a pre scored metallic white card from Blue Edge Crafts for the base card. Mauve Bazzill Bling and I layered the image up on some wonderful silver glitter paper (both from BE Crafts). The greetings I printed out on my computer and backed with green card and finished the card with three square bling. I coloured the image with my watercolour pencils and aqua pen. Also added a touch of Dimensional Magic to the glasses and the balloon. My friend loved them both and ended up buying both. :-)
