CFC 99, Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger - Happy 65th Birthday


Remember my neighbour? I made this card for her friend on her 90th birthday. This week is my neighbour's daughter's birthday. Her 65th to be exact. My neighbour asked me to make a card. No problem, I said - what colour would she like?

Mauve.

Um. No. I don't have mauve, I don't like mauve, I'm not doing mauve. Does mauve still exist? It's such an 'old' colour*.

Actually I spent most of Saturday trying to do mauve and it just would not work! Regal Rose will have to do (I did get permission to use any pastel colours). I used Stampin' Up's Big Blossom, MSE Parfait numbers and an Impress sentiment. I used my Versamark pen to create the silver dots around the flower and the silver border around the 65 flower centre.

I'm going to link this up to CASual Friday's 2 week Birthday Bash challenge.

And to this week's Tuesday Trigger.



*PS - I fully respect your right to be a mauve-lover. I just can't do it myself, sorry!

Those are perfect dots! What a steady hand. There is no room for error on such a clean card as this. I stand in awe.

I love the silver around the regal rose...I'm sure she'll love it...even without the mauve :)!

Love this! Really like the silver accents. I'm sure mauve still exists it just goes by another funkier name. LOL. Can't say I have mauve either. Plum, purple, lavender sure, but mauve? Next someone will ask you for harvest gold! LOL. :-)

Love this offset flower and the dots (now I see what you'd been thinking!) Love the cursive font as a contrast.

Love these two colours together, Ardyth (whatever they're called!) ... astonishingly cool hand doing all those precision perfect embossed silver dots! Anita :)

This is an awesome card. I love the silver with the pink (or mauve). You sound like such a kind person, to go to such trouble for your friend.

FAB b.d. card! Makes me wish I still had that BIG floral stamp. Like the pink/wht/silver color theme, and the (I assume) metallic silver liq pearls dots to as an outline is grand! :)

Mauve is for bathroom walls in old houses! I don't do mauve either!

This color is fabulous - especially paired with silver.

So I'm thinking that you and Shirley have definitely been eating (or drinking) the same stuff because you are both laying down some pretty amazing dotted designs! Well worth the effort, because this is stunning!

Wow!! Love this so much! I bet your neighbor's daughter will treasure this! How friendly are we Canadians, eh?

Angie Tieman said...

Eeek! What a fabulous design!! LOVE that silver embossing and the 65 placement!

Kelly Griglione said...

Mauve makes me cringe. Having said that, it looks pretty respectable next to the silver. Way to put some lipstick on that one! Love the embossed dots you did by hand ... a very STEADY hand! Glad you joined the CASual Fridays challenge : )

You must be the sweetest neighbor ever! What a fabulous card too, that big pink flower is so cute.

paperella said...

Super pretty! I'm sure your neighbour loved it! (and now I just need a Versamark marker too)

Cath said...
