Special Birthday wishes for a special friend

Hello my crafty friends I hope you’re all well.fty friends I hope you’re all well.
I have to tell you I have been sitting on my hands with this cards so not to show you too soon I have been itching to share it with you but couldn’t as the recipient’s birthday is today!!!!
So Happy Birthday to a very special friend Sandra  65 today (she’ll kill me I know hahah) we have been friends now for nearly 10 years we met online through our blogs then we started to email each other and our friendship progressed from there. We call each other regularly and I go up to see her when our hubby’s footie teams are playing against each other.
So of course I couldn’t share the card on here until I knew she had opened it and ad today is her birthday tah dahh I can now show you

So for this card I have tried to make it more mixed media style and I also made a matching canvas (getting good ain’t I lol)
All the papers and images used are from Polkadoodles Belle papillon and so are the butterflies and flowers (even the one I made were made using the pares from the set.

I added lots of other bits from my stash (key, frames corners etc) and coloured with distress sprays and inks and also starlight acrylics .

The insert was made was made using the papers and one of the images then I added a verse to finish it off.

The canvas was made the same way as card using gesso to cover then texture paste and inks .
Hope you like it and I will see you soon

I am so thrilled that you can now show everyone this STUNNING MATCHING SET you have created, PERFECT IN EVERY WAY. I love it. The verse is just fabulous and the words are very special to you and I.
