.... This morning I have a special birthday card to share with you. One of my friends asked me to make a 60th birthday card for his wife - but he didn't want flowers or pink. Helen is one of the local Guiders and she has been involved with the organisation for a long time, and Glynn wanted me to make a card using the Guide colours of blue and gold and to incorporate the Guide logo. I had a hunt on the Internet and found the Trefoil logo which is a lovely soft blue, downloaded and made my own backing paper.
I kept the design quite simple - it's simply layering with different papers and finishes. I decided to make a rosette as the main feature on the card and used a number of different nesties to cut out the layers. The only bit of stamping on the card is the birthday greeting.

Today is going to be quite busy. Jonathan and I will be starting on the next round of decluttering; and I'm sure we'll make a good start on filling the skip! Kathryn is going to make a birthday card for her friend - she's at the party this afternoon. And this evening we are all off to Helen's party. It's going to be a fun day! See you soon.
