A card using a designer that I havent used for a long time.....

It has been such a long time since I used an image by the wonderful designer & artist Joanna Sheen, as I had brought her latest cd rom set about a month ago I decided to see if there was an image on one of the 3 discs that I thought would be suitable for a 50th birthday.  I wanted to create a lovely cute ish card for one of my dearest friends, Julie, who is 50 later this month. Julie & I used to work together, f& lived just round the corner from each other. We worked together for almost 4 years but we are still good friends some 20+ years.  I wanted to make Julie a special card as we have been through so much together, more so when we worked together but little things since & not just because she is a real friend.....

The Triple cd rom of House Mouse Collection is pictured above if you are not sure which one I am on about.

I fell in love with the card when I had finished it & I hope you like it as much as I do. I had no idea what size or type of card I wanted to create for a special friends birthday, more so, her 50th!!!! lol.

I chose a beautiful design on Disc 2, which has the Mice & Friends, At Home, Just For Fun, At The Seaside, Sweet Treats and everyday decoupage, bookmarks sentiments & embellishments.
I looked through all the images first & then decided on what image I wanted to use. I decided and chose the matching backing paper too. The pink backing paper & both the sentiment in the center of the ribbon tied card and the oval shaped sentiment on the front are from another cd by a different designer. The flowers, faux pearl flowers, the fabric flowers, the organza ribbon and the white card base are all from my own stash.
The card was a real joy to make & I really hope that Julie loves it as much as me. I think it deserves a box though as I have to post it... only 35 miles away but with not driving anymore I cant hand deliver it. I do wish I could though as I would love to see both Julie & her husband, Rob.
