Global Design Project #030 - Number of Years

Wow, I have been busy this week. The excitement is building for OnStage next week and I've finally designed my swap cards... Yippee. But in between all the excitement, my mother-in-law asked if I would make a special card for a friend of hers who is turning 50. I had also been wanting to take part in the Global Design Project as I absolutely loved the sketch that the gorgeous Teneale Williams had whipped up.
 The cards that the Design Team had made were so inspirational and my card came together very easily:
The specification for the card was, 50, not frilly, no flowers and likes greens. I'm pretty sure I nailed it. I had all the elements in my head, but was struggling with how to anchor it all and then I decided to put the numbers on to the butterfly.

I used an aqua painter to make my Mint Macaroon/Bermuda Bay wash for the background and finished it with some Coastal Cabana sequins. Did you know, these gorgeous 2013/2015 incolour sequins are still available on our Clearance Rack?? You really should pop over and check it out as there are some real bargains to be found there.

Well that's it for me today. Please pop over and check out the talent at the Global Design Project. Those guys and gals are amazing!!

Happy Crafting,
