Digistamped 21st Tri Easel Birthday card

Hello, it is a beautiful winter's day in Cape Town and I am sharing a tri easel card that I made for an order.  I am never sure whether the person will like the card that I produce, I prefer to make cards and then they select the ones they like.  However this lady phoned me to thank me for the card after delivery and she couldn't stop raving about it, she took photos of it to send to her friends, I felt quite tearful when she finished going on about it.  The great news is that she has placed another order for 30 cards.

I had been wanting to make a tri-easel card so this was a great opportunity.  The card had to include a photo of the 21st birthday girl on the card and as she is a fanatical Hip Hop dancer and student that was the theme.  The Kenny K digistamp was perfect, the 21st digistamp is a freebie from Netty's and I used a free Sizzex downloadable paper for the background.  The image is coloured in Copics and I've used a narrow Cuttlebug die with flowers and flourishes on the red strip and embellished it with pearls.  Nesties and Marianne's dies were used for the flourishes and circles.

Nic starts exams tomorrow so my crafting time will be seriously limited over the next 3 weeks as Sasha starts hers next Friday.  But the weeks fly by so fast before we blink it will be over.

Have a happy day, it is almost weekend again!
