Birthday card....

Not a lot of time for crafting this week as I am helping my daughter who has her own cake business,  she has a big Charity event on Friday so have lots of cakes, flowers and toppers to make, I did sugarcraft for over 20 years but things have changed so much just like cards styles change and things go in and out of fashion but I still enjoy it..

This is a card a made about 3 weeks ago using the solid die from the SU Filigree Poinsettia set to make my flower....all the dies I've used are SW ones, the butterfly Martha Stewart and sentiment from Stampin Up.....its a very pale card and looks much nicer in the flesh....

The weather is horrible today cold, wet and windy....but we cant complain can we..

It's a horrid day here as well Anne, just gt drenched going from the card to the dentist and back.

There is such a beautifully elegant and delicate feel to your pretty card.

Enjoy the cake decorating, I agree things have changed so much, I also did sugar craft years ago and although I enjoyed re-visiting it to make our daughters anniversary cake don't think I would have the patience to do in regularly any more.
