Girlie 60th birthday card


This is a commissioned card for a 60th birthday - I was asked to make it with a fashion theme, so I used an offcut of some English Paper company background paper (from long ago) andn offcut band of paper across the bottom bordered with ribbon and corrugated strip, with a glittered birthday tag and sentiment circle. Handbags and shoe were cut on the Scan n Cut using Tattered lace USB 8 The best of 2016 handbag boutique and shoe boutique  with hot pink mirror card.
