As Promised....Ros's 70th Birthday Card.

Evening everyone, hope you're having a fab weekend......the weather has been gorgeous here today, warm enough to be in the garden without 5 layers of clothing on!
The card I'm showing tonight is one I made for my lovely sister-in-law, Ros's 70th birthday yesterday.
Because I am the youngest of 3 children, my eldest brother Colin  is 15 years older than me...... so, when he started going out with Ros, I was only 7! which means Ros has been part of our family for 53 years, and is my 'sister' in all but blood......
I LOVE her to bits!
In all this time, we've never has a crossed word, and although we don't see each other as often as I'd like, (them being in Darlington and us in Wiltshire) we talk almost every other day on the phone and make the most of it when we do get together, 3 or 4 times a year.
So onto the card.......

All the cardstock is from PAPERMILL, it's the only card I ever use.
White linen, pink, and 2 shades of green.

The die is from Marianne,
with a computer generated sentiment.
and a daisy embossing folder.

The card is a 9" square, made with 2 sheets of A4 joined together. The corners are from a lattice die set by Spellbinders.
I've added some 'liquid pearl' dots to finish.

I do hope you like this card..... I know Ros did, as we spoke yesterday from Spain where they're holidaying.
I'll be back in a couple of days with a new technique that I've been trying.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
By the way, still no sign of our new baby ;(
