Fizzy Moon Birthday

This is a card that I was commissioned to make for a lovely lady for her daughter-in-law's birthday.  The birthday is now long since passed so I know I'm safe to post this now.

Once again many apologies for the terrible photography (I'm just not improving, lol)
I loved putting this card together as it features some of my very favourite things, bears, pink and pretty things in general.

The DP is from First Edition "Love Letters" , such a gorgeous selection of papers that I have several stacks of the same . . . I don't ever want to run out!!!
The image was pulled out from the Fizzy Moon Decoupage pad, as I had to put this card together very quickly and didn't have time to colour in an image.

A close up of the ribbon detail.  I threaded two short lengths of Chatterbox Ribbon through a pearlised pink buckle and arranged them so they created this criss-cross effect and tucked the ends underneath the matting layer.

The inside of the card was decorated to match the front with a chipboard repeat of the character.  The verse was sourced from the many Internet sites which are out there now for verses and poems.  Good old Internet . . . I don't know what I would do without it : 0)

Finally a photo of the box which was made to match the card.

Thank you for visiting,

This is just gorgeous Julie Anne. Love Fizzy Moon and a box to match is brilliant. Sorry I haven't been around much lately but work has been so hectic. Hope you are ok.
