Special Daughter

Good morning all.I hope you are all well.The car was fixed yesterday, it was something to do with the front suspension, an arm or says he can still hear something rattling though??!!
So here is the card i made yesterday and i was really stressing about it too.I thought i had longer to make it but i was given the wrong date.My brief was blue and lilac and 40 on it plus the ladies name, i have blanked that bit out on my photo`s.
I am entering this card in to the following challenges:
2.Charisma Cardz Challenge - Challenge 11 - Diecuts
Products used are:
Navy pearl card
Lilac card
White hammered card
Papermania capsule paper
Mix of roses
Cheery Lynn flower die (white and blue felt one)
Glamour Dusr
Stickles stardust
Marianne design frame die
Champagne glasses die
Diecut numbers (kindly done for me by Sue at Crafty Urchins)
Pearl ribbon
Hougie board
Glue gun
Close up of the main bit.
The number 40 is covered in glamour dust but its not showing.

A sideways view.

and a pic of the box lid, do excuse my hand.
Fingers crossed now the lady likes this, i am dropping if off after work.
Oh dear school is closed today because we`ve had snow over night.
Thanks so much for popping by,means a lot :D

Hope the repair bill wasn't too shocking! Cars are so expensive when things go, it's frightening. Bad enough when filling the tank! Ok rant over, LOL.
It's a beautiful card and I'm sure the two recipients wil love it. Why wouldn't they!

Eileen said...

Fabulous card Nic. Love all those flowers and great design and layout.
My friend had what sound like similar problems to you. She had one job done and still had the rattle, with her car something had actually gone in the middle of the ?strut? anyway it couldn't be seen from the outside and took the garage ages to find out what it was.
Hope yours isn't the same problem as it was expensive.
