God's blessing

My project

A view from the back

A 20cm diameter circle folded in a triangle.

Good Morning

This is a special card for a friend whom celebrate her 60th birthday, this coming week-end. Though all birthdays are special I thought something different will do for this achievement.

So I combined a few challenges and used handmade paper as base. I 've cut a 20cm diameter and then folded in a triangle. I used my Marianne design's diecuts for the top flower and grab the freebie sentiment from Netty's cards. When I saw the digi is from Sliekje and she called it Just Cute and you can interepret it as rain or snow, I stopped searching, since I know my friend has 3 granddaughters in England. The sentiment is my own in Afrikaans and read: "May God's blessing rain upon you, so that you can grow and keep on be a blessing to all." I've added the ribbon to fasten it a the back, though it is not prominent on the front. I didn't want to add to much embellishments since I wanted to make the paper more the focale point.

The challenges I've combined:

Just us Girls #109 - Sketch - won't you tri(angle) it.
CASual Fridays CFC 27 - Over the edge

Glitter Geeks #22 - Snuggle up

Thank you and have a splendid day!

I'm off going to bake pancakes.
