Austrian Birthday


Well, I finally got to make a card!! A friend 's mother is visiting from Austria. We cannot converse as I do not speak her language, but she is turning 80 today. I made her a card with an Austrian greeting on it, thus joining in on an ancient dare from DCM that a card be made with a foreign greeting on it. I also worked in the more recent dare that I make something with 20 different things on it. Count the flowers. There are 20 and they are all punched out of different papers! It was fun to make and I do hope she likes it. I also hope I found the right Austrian words for 'Happy Birthday' and am not telling her something different!

Hi Susan - welcome back.
Better late than never - this is what I tell myself, when I'm late with a dare - which is most of the time.

Great card, your friends Mum will love it and well done in getting 2 in 1.

Hi Susaon, fab card, so cool to combine 2 dares in one :). I am always playing catch up lol, it is good to have you back!

The flowers on the cards on my blogs are shaded, I used a white ink pad to add a lightness to the ends and create shading....

Those flowers are the perfect touch Susan. Love how you've added the variations of colour. I love that little flower punch!
