This must be a new record for me - a new blog post!!
My Mum asked me to make a card for a friend who is turning 70 this week.
Thanks to Karen Burniston for the inspiration - teal and black card - Karen Fab Blog
It was fun using the Sizzix pop up cake die. The centre structure was reinforced to stop it collapsing. I used Temping Turquoise and Black cardstock, Baroque motifs stamp set and lots of bling!
It is my Mum's birthday today so Happy Birthday to her and yes she did get a handmade card from me too!
Hope you like it.

Well it has taken me long enough to complete this card, what with trips to the beach, family visits and tennis games.
I enjoyed this and hope that it looks ok - the photo doesn't show the colours at their best but that is my fault.
Hopefully this will be the first of many that I actually put up here.
