Commission......... a Special Friend

 picture overload......sorry but I wanted to show all the aspects of this card. It was a commission for a special friend card and it had to be different from all the designs I had done before, simply because I've made cards for this lady quite a few times. I'm delighted to say she loved it....phew!!! 
I have used First Edition papers though out and  the images are from the fabulous Saturated Canary coloured with Copics.

Inside I have used a circle sentiment from LOTV and the butterfly is a Marianne Creatables die.

Flower from my stash and the metal corner is Wild Orchid Crafts, ribbon from Mei Flower

The Birthday Recipe stamp is from LOTV and the other verse is computer generated.

I've kept it quite simple as I didn't want to overpower the fabulous images. I've taken a liking to First Edition papers recently and have bought most of  they are so lovely and half are sparkly and the other half are double sided, great value !!
 That's me for tonight hopefully I'll be back with more cards in a couple of days as I'm off work for a week and I'm planning some crafting time...........woohooo .. I would love to hear your opinions on this card as I've never done this design before and would value any comments you care to leave.

Thanks for popping in.......
