An 80th Birthday Card

Ive managed to make another card.   My friend asked me to make a card for her cousin who is 80 on the 7th November, she was anxious to get it in the post before the dreaded postal strikes.   I used one of the Pixie downloads from Charmed crafts.  The sketch I used is a recent one from Sketch Saturday I think but I didnt enter it into the challenge cos I was too late.  I used my nesties to make the scalloped mounts but unfortunately my camera has made the mirror card glare a bit.  I coloured her in with my prismas and used glitter on her wings.    

I hope to get some more cards done after I come back off holiday.   Going easy on the decorating for the rest of the week.    Ive had a dreadful bad back, caused by a muscle strain, which I did by hula hooping on my daughters Wii Fit, shant be doing that one again.   Its much better than it was though.

Thank you for looking
