Flower Fairies

Another of my friends has reached the age of 60. I think back to my youth and remember that I thought that 60 was very, very old. Now I am there I know that it is a very different world today and that I now consider 80 to be old. If I ever reach that age I might then think that 90 was "old"

I used backing papers and a topper from the Enchanted CD Rom of Linda Ravenscroft's illustrations for the easel card. The theme is Gemini which is my friend's star sign.

After I took this photo, I decided to personalise the card by adding her name. I used my Sillouette (the new Craft Robo) to cut a welded name and also the 60 that you see here. I made the paper flower myself using a Sizziz Bigz die - a really handy purchase, especially when you need a particular colour of flower. The flourish is cut from a small die and I added an acetate dragonfly. I applied Stickles to the wings to give them a glittered effect which, unfortunately has not shown up on the photo.
