mandys ballet card

well another day another challenge,today i am showing this birthday card for mandy (vickimays daughter) using "the mojo monday sketch" ~ used k&co papers, nestabilities ovals, kerrys stamps, see d`s stamps and ribbon, glittered vellum from my stash, and plenty of glitter! with the paper left over i cut out some more butterflies and decoupaged them (vicki you just need to pull out the wings to make them stand out!!) ~see by clicking on the pic, for more of the details.
so enjoyed making htis girly card ~hope you had a very happy birthday mandy, and the film and food was good.
well the washing machine is on , lewis spilt a glass of milk all over my bed last night ~it went every where ~how does it travel so far!!! how did i strip the bed off so quick at 10.30 last night!!(and re~make it ,while he cried uncontrollably???) "thats life"!!
hope you have a good day , and not too many unpleasant suprises!! :~) byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee xx

Pretty card Vanessa, I love the way you've used the vellum. We once spilled some milk in the card on a day at the coast. Cleaned it up, or so we thought, & went off fo the day. It was scorching hot so you can imagine the stench when we got back to the car!!! We travellend the 70 miles back with all the windows open!! We never got rid of the smell soended up getting rid of the car lol!! I used a ton of airfreshner every time someone came for a test run lol!!
Have a good weekend.

Its always so much harder to make cards for special people isn't it lol!!!!!

Thank you Vanessa, Mandy loved this card. I didn't need to put the wings up, Mandy did it when she opened the card. Such beautiful papers and colours and the image is so cute especially with the added glitter. Really beautiful as always big hugs Vicki oxo's
