Unexpected 50th Birthday Card

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

Happy Thursday. I am back again today this time with a card I wasn't expecting to make. It is someone at works special birthday today but the card was wanted for yesterday (that is when we have our group meeting) and I was asked on Tuesday if I had a card. Luckily I was up to date with Design Team makes so I found the time to make this.


I had been going to use a card from my extensive stash but then I remembered a sheet of images of cyclists. The recipient is a keen cyclist and all the presents were themed around this hobby so I just had to make a card using the images. 

I think the sheet is one from Kanban. The images set the tone of the card and influenced my colour choices. The background seemed empty once I had placed the elements so I added some die cuts to give some added texture. 


I was there when the card was opened and the recipient was thrilled she liked her presents too. It was nice to make her a special card. 

Happy Crafting 

Hugs Jackie
