Are you a model? - 30th Birthday card

A work colleague requested a card for her sister, she wanted a card that depicted things said by people which she rips her sister for, to include the sayings.."are you a model (on front of the card)?" and "your a natural beauty (on the inside of the card)"... the card went down well;

I designed the card on the cricut gypsy using Alphalious for the wording cut at 1" and Rock Princess for the Model cut at 8". I used chalks and fine art pens for the shading and to add details. Mirror card was used for the shadow backings for the Model and the lettering. I added ribbon, flat backed pearls, glitter glue, punched flowers and mini gem butterflies to embellish the card both inside and out. The retro card used on this card and to line the envelope was a good buy from Lidl, bought when they had scrap booking items on offer! It really set the idea for the card and enhanced the look! I'm really pleased with the over all look!
