Hi all I received an order for several cards which are for different occasions, I rarely make a card to order, except for my mum, as I always get nervous and my confidence drops to an all time low and doubt my ability to produce something that is worthy to be used.
This is the first of the cards that I made and I think I got it wrong, it is for a 65yr wedding anniversary from a wife to her 90 yr old hubby but I liked the finished look I would be so interested in what you think about it.
I have used a digi image from Cuddly Buddly which I have coloured with Promarkers.  I printed two images so I could 3'd the bear, I cut around the frame and mounted it onto a gold mirri circle, the papers are from SU, I have added a wide red ribbon and a lame bronze ribbon and bow.  I found some stickers which I used for the corners, the sentiment is computer generated, finally I added one red rose bud and a flower.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

I took a picture from two different angles because of the mirri card, I liked them both so thought I would show them. 
I hope that you like my card and have enjoyed your visit.  I want to thank you all for such lovely comments on both my work, my blog look and music, I try to make everyone's visit as pleasant and calm as possible.
Hugs to all see you soon.

Hi Lorraine,
I don't know why you get nervous about making cards for other people - this is just beautiful. Such lovely colours and Cuddly Buddly are always such cute images. I think it is perfect.

Merry said...

I think your card is lovely...terrific layout. I agree with you about being nervous when making a card on request. I think that is why I always make two different cards.....I figure will get somthing right on one of them. :-)

I adore this card sweetie. Everything is perfect. I am sure the gentleman will love it too. I love your choice of music at the moment it is great and in the past my hubby has looked up the music you are playing on the internet and downloaded it as he makes movie discs for people and he has used it for his background music.
I know what you mean about getting all nervous when asked to make a special card for someone as I am the same. Where you are concerned you should have no worries as yours are all ways fantastic.

I think the old lady will definitely love giving this beautiful card to her beloved husband....

Aww this is so cute Lorraine, we are so our own worst critics, like you I'm not a fan of commissions and tend to think my cards are not so good for them and I may have another wedding anniv card in the pipeline to be made too and never know where to go with them! However the people who order and buy these cards do so because they want something handmade and not shop bought so although it may not seem like our best to us for them its more than they ask for! bet the couple in question love it hugs Rebekah xx
