What do you do when the husband of one of your best friends asks you if you have a special card, big enough for 14 people to sign at her birthday meal, with an appropriate sentiment for a 65th birthday and if not he could count on me to sort something out?.......and he needed it in 24 hours time, despite the surprise birthday meal being planned months ago! As I was out yesterday evening until 11pm and out all day today, the only choice I had was to start it at 11pm last night or tell my friend's husband to go to the local card shop and buy one. So, what did I do? I said I'd sort something out, will I never learn?! I don't know why it seems to take me much longer to make a card when I'm under time pressure, but this card took almost 2 hours to make, the design evolving as I went along and with a couple of mishaps on the way.
For the background I used Sue Wilson Creative Expression 'Scalloped Lattice Frames - Set B'. The stitched circles and rectangle are from Memory Box and the butterfly is two of the dies from the Spellbinders 'Les Papillons 2' set. Five tiny clear gems for the butterfly's body finished off my card.
