50th Birthday...

Evening all :)

Here's a card I made for a friends 50th Birthday.

I've used another of the retired LOTV Die-Cut Images (I bought LOADS of these when they were mega reduced last year). I need to get a file and Poly Pockets to store them in as they are still in the envelope they arrived in and they're going to get a bit dog-eared the amount of times I'm taking them out and then trying to get them back in!

I've cut the image with a deckled Nestie leaving the balloon floating out of the frame. The papers are more of the First Edition 'Desert Blooms' - these stacks are fab, half of the sheets are glittered and the other half are double sided.

The sentiments were done on the PC and of course the flowers are from WOC.
The balloon and cake icing have been 'Crakle Glazed'.

More Twinklets on the flowers, although on this one I only added it to the edge of the petals and I don't like it much. A sprinkling of Twinklets added to the balloon too.
Thanks Vicky for the tip on using Glossy Accents for the Twinklets - I will try that!

The Kraft backing piece is one of my recycling favs - it's the board piece from one of those 'Do Not Bend' type A4 envelopes!!!

A couple of challenges I'd like to enter my card into...
