65th and 70th Birthday Commissions

Good morning everyone I hope you are all OK and looking forward to a great weekend. Today I'm sharing a couple of special commission cards I was asked to make for a friend they are for a 65th and  a 70th birthday and she asked for pastel shades. They are similar to these type of cards I've made for her before but that was what she wanted, hope you enjoy them .

Some much gorgeousness !! Two absolutely beautiful cards with matching boxes Carole. The card and box designs are really wonderful. Fabulous flowers and lace. I think my favourite is the second one but only because I really love the colour palette and that truly yummy lace. You really excel at making these cards and boxes. Your friends must be so happy to be able to get cards from you for their friends :). Debra x
