This card was for my cousins 40th birthday.
I used my Cameo to do all the cutting, it started of with an idea of wanting to put 40 on a plate card but then I just kept adding (like you do) until I felt it was right. The fan I cut as an experiment some time ago and the feather was from a Christmas decoration, the pins are from a florists I just added a couple of extra beads on, so it pays to have a little box of "I might use that one day", glad I kept them. If my cousin only knew her card was left overs she wouldn't be to impressed.
Anyway I think it the right time to enter this into http://cupcakecraftchallenges.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/cupcake-231-shaped-cards.html as this times challenge is "shaped cards".
