Happy Birthday

Today my dear and amazingly talented SIL Lisette is celebrating her 40th birthday. She and her hubby will be spending the weekend in Paris. I am sure they will have a wonderful time together. Congrats, Lisette!

My card for Lisette turned out quite simple, and I am not completely satisfied. Something was 'wrong' with this card and I couldn't tell what it was. When editing the picture I realized the punched border should have had the same width as the checked paper instead of the same width as the flower paper. It's a little detail, but it's the reason why I am not really happy with the card.



And a close-up of the gorgeous blue pearl swirl by Zva Creative.

Ik vind 'm toch weer prachtig! Wel grappig dat ook jij, in je eigen ogen dan..., nog wel eens een foutje maakt, terwijl er zoveel mensen (waaronder ik) denken dat je de kaarten zo uit je mouw schudt!
Fijn weekend, x Floortje

Gefeliciteerd Ingrid, met je schoonzus!
Ze zal ongetwijfels heel blij zijn met deze (misschien niet perfecte maar wel heel mooie) kaart.....

Groetjes Ellen
