100 ! Somebody get more candles!

Woohoo... it's Friday and the sun is shining.
I hope you have some great plans for the weekend.
I plan to laze in the garden, drink melon margaritas and eat deli food.
No cooking allowed ;-)

This week I was asked to make a 100th birthday card, with a flower theme.
Eek! You know I can't 'do' flowers.
Then I remembered my LOTV art pad... easy peasy :-)

The art pads are fantastic for us 'florally challenged' crafters and, because they are pre-coloured, they make a super quick card.
I spent more time playing with glitter here than anything else. :-)

The image and sentiment are attached with foam pads, to give it all a bit more interest.
I wish the camera picked up the colours and sparkle better. 
IRL the chevron DP is a very pretty, pale pink (Blossom) and the glamour dust (my favourite glitter) catches the light beautifully.
