I was asked to make this card with instructions that it should be air force blue, 8" x 8" in size and have the age on the front. Well, this was the nearest I could get to the colour but it then took me over an hour to work out which colour which go best with the blue and how to fill the card so the sentiment wasn't lost. In the end, I decided to mount the sentiment on a large die cut and add a little bit of kraft card.
Papers are from Pink Petticoat, embossing folder is Tonic and dies are a mixture of MFT, Tattered Lace and Tim Holtz. Sentiment is Penny Black.
