Rosie's Birthday

Rosie is a mainstay on Bubbly Funk and she celebrated her birthday yesterday. As it was a milestone birthday (you know, one of those that ends with a zero) I decided to push the boat out and make a card.

The monogram is hand cut (I printed out an R in font High Tower at about 400pt and used it as a template) and painted with pearlescent acrylic. It's triple embossed with clear so it has an enamel effect in real life that didn't photograph all that well.

Those daisies usually live in a jar (see them here if you don't recognise them) but I thought it would be fun to set them free - the little piece of raffia is tied around to disguise the line where the the jar goes across the stems. The shrink plastic sentiment tag is really only there because Rosie can be relied upon to shriek with horror if shrink plastic is mentioned on the forum and I thought it might make her smile.

Supplies: Daisy Jar and Paisley backgrounder (both Cornish Heritage Farms), Brilliance ink (Sky Blue and Graphite Black, Nick Bantock charcoal grey ink, Whispers Azure Seas ink, Prismacolor pencils/Sansodor/blending stump, white shrink plastic, Krylon pen, split ring, natural raffia, pearlescent acrylic paint, Versamark ink, clear embossing powder, scoring board

Hope you're enjoying your new-found maturity, Rosie *wink*

Thanks for taking a peep, I'd love to know what you thought!

I feel EXTRA special now Joanne that you 'pushed the boat out' and made me a spesh card! It is sooo gorgeous in real life, I can vouch for that as I have it sitting with the rest of the wonderfully thoughful cards that were made for me from everyone at Bubbly Funk.

Shrink Plastic!!!!!! OMG - where are my scissors to remove that tag?! LOL

Only joking, it can stay, I just won't look at that bit of the card ;-)

It's lovely Joanne, thank you so much.
