A commissioned card- 100!

I was asked to make a card for a lady who is going to be 100. The brief was very specific- a church with a steeple, flowers, 100, pastel colours.... thanks to my mate Kay's stamp collection, I came up with this.....

The church is a Chocolate Baroque stamp- stamped in clear and heat embossed in silver pearl, which is why it's not very clear on the photo. Dovecraft paper, flowers coloured with Promarkers to match, swirls and pearls and Martha Stewart punches. 

I was quite pleased with it in the end- once I'd sourced the stamped image, it came together OK!

I'm entering this into the Try it on Tuesday challenge- which is Anything goes with a Twist. I used a Versamark watermark ink pad, Blue Pearl Promarker to ink the flowers and teeny tiny baby blue pearls, all available from the Craft Barn.


  1. Beautiful card Lisa, the pastel shades are lovely and the image and the flowers are gorgeous. I'm sure the lady in question will absolutely love it. Sue C x
