Gracie

Good evening crafters and followers.  Hope you are well. Well it's Thursday again and I have finished work and looking forward to a weekend of crafting  Today's card was made to order.  As you will have guessed the recipient was a young lady called Gracie who was going to be 20 years old.  Her grandmother wanted me to include this particular car as Gracie had just had her first car.  I started with an 8x8 scalloped base card followed by blue card and then another piece of white card die cut with a square scalloped spellbinders grande die.  I then wound some blue satin ribbon around the white die cut.  The image was printed onto glossy photo paper, die cut and the matted onto a piece of diecut blue card.  The flowers are marianne dies and the leaves are from spellbinders.  The name is stamped onto some white card candy, as is the young ladies age.  You can't see it but there is also a picture of her car from a different angle on the looseleaf insert and a verse from her grandmother.  Hopefully she  liked the card and I hope you do too.  It was a bit of a challenge using a card but keeping it feminine too. 
Thank you for taking the time to view my blog.  You take care.
