Eileens 60th birthday card

Eileen has been a friend of mine for 21 years now. She has been a single mother all the time ive known her and have had some terrible things thrown at her by she has learnt to be tough!! She has never been a girly girl nor has she been a tomboy..shes somewhere inbetween so i couldnt throw lots of glitter or glitz at her card i had to go somewhere in the middle so here it is...

The card came from the free files from Penny Duncan she does some really beautiful designs and is so generous with her sharing..thank you Penny I think the lattice work is beautiful...

The 60 was cut on my sil on white card i then ran it through my xylon machine to get it sticky and covered it with gold leaf...when working with gold leaf remember not to sneeze!! and remember to be quite enthusiastic with removing the excess or you will find it can be worse than glitter for its sneakyness into unfortunate places!!

The flowers and leaves I got from a blog hop in the form of pngs and converted them into Print and cut files on my sil babes...hope she likes it..inside i put a cake the one that comes with your sil software and sprayed it gold

Thank you for looking
Love debby xx
