Twenty First Card . . . .

. . . .for our darling Granddaughter Ashleigh. I hope she knows just how Special she is to us and how very much she is loved. She turns 21 this month!!! How can that be happening so soon? It just seems like yesterday that I held her in my arms for the first time and fell in love with her instantly. Anyway, before I get all teary, this is the card I have made for her Special Day. The vellum flowers I showed you the other day. I hand cut some leaves from green vellum and mounted them all on burgundy 'spider web' stuff I had in my stash. Then I added the gold bow and the gold 21 to finish the front. Inside I put a beautiful poem I found on the internet, (where else), written by a grandfather for his granddaughter. The words express just exactly how I feel about Ashleigh. The first photo is taken with the flash, the second without. I like them both! I need to make a box for the card now but I don't have any card big enough so I have to go to the art shop tomorrow to buy a sheet. I'll show you when it's done. Well I'm off to watch the netball - Silver Ferns (NZ) vs The Diamonds (Aussies). The Aussies won the first test last weekend so it's do or die for us tonight as it's best of three. GO THE SILVER FERNS!!! Thanks for looking at my work. I really appreciate your visits.
