Happy 19th Birthday Melissa

Happy Birthday to our wonderful daughter Melissa. 

This year is going to be full of exciting new experiences for her and us, I am sure.  Melissa heads off to Uni in Brisbane at the end of February to start a Diploma of Graphic Design course.  Who knows where this will lead.  Yep, we (husband and I) will be empty nesters....but both of us a looking forward to travel this will lead to.

Melissa's requests for her card were purple and glitter.  Do you think I covered it?

So colours sorted I then decided to use the Craftmad January Sketch :-

The papers are from a Creativ pack that Melissa gave me for christmas the beautiful purple glitter card is from Blue Edge Crafts.  The Happy Birthday sentiment I used some glitter washi tape I picked up over Christmas and stuck it to a piece of card stock before using my die cut.  I also bought a sheet of bling which you can cut into any shape you'd like.  I didn't think it possible but the bling are a soft plastic and I was able to cut the circle out for the centre of the white paper flowers.

Thanks for stopping on by, have a great day.

  12. I like this card but I love the darling engagement card. Your cards just are adorable. Thanks for your well wishes. I am on the mend and glad to have caught it when I did. I was told it was nothing by one doctor and when it didn't go away I demanded to see a specialist and am so glad I did. We really have to watch out for ourselves these days don't we. Take care and use that sun screen!
