Something very different from me..


Hi folks hope your enjoying this lovely weather were having on the north east coast in the UK?
 this creation is very diff. to what I normally make, it was for my daughters future MIL Pat..it was her B/day Sun...
I was sorting out some old stash (like you do when the sun shines) lol & came across some long
forgotten Kanban.. I know Pat likes a gentle type of lady card so this seemed appropriate.
The pics dont do it justice the sun was shining to bright..OMG did I say that??lol  & I had to
give daughter it to pass on, no more time for any more pics..I dont know what the Kanban is called I bought
it many moons ago.. base card is pink A4 pearlised , folded then the front half folded back
harlequin DP is from Echo Park “Be Mine” pack from SSS, black die cut swirls are TH  “Elegant Flourish “ SSS,
Kanban image is matt & layered with black/pink card, lots of gems & a lovely floaty pink feather..
Inside is a smaller Kanban  image more matting & layering, gems & swirls. SB shape with B/day  sentiment..
