A commissioned card


I have a few cards to make for a commission and for this one I was asked to make a card for a lady who is 91, like traditional and pretty. The card is 7" square so that gave me plenty of opportunity for embellishments.
Image - Wee topper from The Hobby House
Papers - First Edition Vintage Noel
Dies - Marianne poinsettias, Punch - Woodware holly
Ribbon - Crafty Ribbons
Sentiment - PC generated
Other - DI vintage photo, Stickles, pearls

Challenges
Southern Girls Twine, tape or ribbon

I am at the hospital shop today so another early start. Hoping I sell a lot of Christmas cards and gifts.

Gosh I love this image so much! And you've so perfectly framed this cutie on your gorgeous card. A little bit of wintery goodness on this very hot Australian autumn (nearly summer) day! Thank you for sharing it with us at Southern Girls for our twine, tape and ribbon challenge!
