Another commission

Hi all,

Well, the lady that commissioned the wedding card loved it so much, she's asked for another! This time it's for a 50th birthday. Colour-wise she wanted pinks and purples, and the birthday girl is apparently very fond of cake!

So here goes:

This is, incidentally, my second play with Core'dinations cardstock (the wedding card was the first). Can I just say that I am in love? Yes.

I used LOTV's "Cake Glorious Cake" and coloured her with Promarkers. I then teamed her  with Dovecraft Back to Basics papers. The 50 is covered in Stickles, but just looks somewhat odd in the picture, lol.

The flowers are mostly WOC, and just look how gorgeous the large white and purple one is! Especially with Stardust Stickles to make it pop a little more...

And I made another presentation box for it to go in... (Using one of the large LOTV sentiment stamps)

I hope she'll like this one as much as she did the other. There's already noises about more cards to come, and I now at least have some money to go toward Make-A-Wish! :-)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

A Gem of a Challenge - Anything goes
Crafty Catz - Anything goes
Sister Act - Anything goes
4 crafty chicks - food and drink

Beauty of a card, box image and flowers Sammy, love the colour combo and good on you for selling your beautiful cards. Here there is not a demand as people prefer to go to the 'cheap' shops and buy the cheapies....sad isn't it...xxxx
