Flowery 80th!

Happy Monday to you all! Blogging a commissioned card today that was for an 80th Birthday. The lady likes flower arranging and bowling, so I thought I would make a flowery bowling card. (Genius huh?)  I am hoping that the bowling is Crown Green, not Ten Pin! lol.

You might recognise the flowers from some Sympathy and Thank you card I made last month, they are from Sheena Douglass's Bloomin Beautiful set. I stamped them in white onto watercolour paper, then heat embossed them in white. Then used my Gansai Tambi Watercolours on top.

The image was a vintage photo online that I recoloured and cropped. I also used some papers that were free from "Making Cards" magazine, quite old and from the stash.  Around the 80 flower I used some spare wings I had over from making the Bee get well soon card - such a hoarder :) The cork numbers are from Papermania. Bling, Stickles, Washi and Nuvo Jewel Drops to finish. Also right at the end I decided to add a butterfly top right, I don't remember where they came from :/

Font is Lobster Two, for those fonty obsessed people out there. I love a good font :)
