Craft Rocket Challenge 11 - Anything Goes

Hello Everyone
I hope that you are well It is now just over three weeks to D-Day (Due Day!) To say I am excited is an understatement, but very scared too.
However, this fortnights challenge for Craft Rocket Challenge is "Anything goes. Plaese take a look at the other DT members work and why not join in.
My card was made for a friend to give to their neighbour who will be 96! I wanted to make a fairly simple card and include texture. Her eyesight is not the best, hence the large lettering and simple font on the front. It also includes my latest guilty secret -  a Tattered Lace Pearl Flourishes die. I must admit they cut like a dream and I think I will find them extremely useful and "bling up" too with mica, embossing powder, gilding flakes, pearl drops etc

  1. So gorgeous Karen, thought it was one of Johns LOL.
    I,m waiting the same as you, she went in yesterday to have it turned as it was breech but it had gone on its own, so now waiting game is on, xx

  2. 96 wow that's a grand old age, love the card, the texture and colour combo are great. Love how you've worked those dies too.

    Exciting times I can't believe you are into the last four weeks, it didn't seem that long ago you mentioned becoming a Grandma/Granny/Nanna? Whatever you prefer. I'm sure your daughter will not agree with me but the time does seem to have flown.
    I hope you are all ready for lots of bosies! (Scottish cuddles).

    Hugs Erika. x
