Birthday card for Richard

Here is a card I made for my sisters partner Richard whose birthday was on Saturday 2nd July. He used to be in the RAF and is also a commercial pilot.

I started with making a twisted easel card. The paper is from a digi download from Pink Petticoat called stripes. The pearlescent green paper is from The Papermill shop. The image is from a decoupage sheet but I can't remember where I bought it from.

I have added green with gold circles on top card candy from Craftwork cards in three of the corners.

The greeting is a Lili of the valley sentiment stamp which I inked up with olive versachalk and then cut out using my circle nestie and layered onto a scalloped circle using a scalloped circle nestie. I also added 2 triangles of stripey paper and 2 triangle of the pearlescent green paper on the base of the card.

I have photographed the card laying flat to go in the envelope and how it stands up.
