Autumnal birthday card

This card is a birthday card I made for a friend who was turning 50.  She is a keen gardener so I thought she'd like this picture, and chose a neat sentiment.

Having seen it, another friend said it was a bit tactless - like now she was fifty she was in the autumn of her life.  Hopefully she didn't see it that way - it wasn't intended!

The image was stamped onto plain card (the stamp is one of flower softs) and was then coloured with promarkers.  It was simply mat and layered onto a card which already had foiling around the edge.

The sentiment was printed out and mat and layered on gold card.

I would like to enter this card into the challenge at
Oldie but Goodie this week - Forever Autumn
Deep Ocean Challenge blog - Fall colours


  1. This is gorgeous, your colouring is wonderful, I love the sky you created. I don't think it's tactless, I think it's just a really pretty gardening image - but that's just my opinion!


  2. Great creation,

    Thanks for joining us at OLDIE BUT A GOODIE Challenge and good luck!
