- 5" x 6" white linen card blank - a funny size but this card might well need a box anyhow
- black and pink 'spider's web' ribbon
- a lovely pink gauze jewelled butterfly embellishment, bought years ago - possibly from Lakeland Limited when they sold card making goodies
- sentiment by Hero Arts called 'Handwritten Happy Birthday' - very bravely (for me) stamped in black Ranger Archival Ink without the aid of a
- a little mix of black pearls and pink gems at two corners plus one little pink one over the letter 'i'
Quite quick and easy, once I backed the inside of the front of the card to hide where the 'spider's web' ribbon was stuck down :)
Len had a lovely Birthday and thanks you all for your kind wishes. At 4pm yesterday this was brought to our room:

Nom nom! Gorgeous looking cake, so glad to hear that you and the Mr are having a good time!

Enjoy your time away Mr and Miss xxReplyDelete

Huh, bet the house mouse hasn't saved a piece for the playgound, what a fab jesture thought, how observant of the guy to notice that, can tell he's not English.ReplyDelete
When I saw the word 'sitting' I immediately thought 'on the dock of the Bay' and expected some exotic photo of you and Len under the board walk!?
Great idea, fab card. Love the jewels.
Great card - but that cake - OMG - that looks sooooo delicious!ReplyDelete
Happy Belated Birthday to Len!! Wow, what an awesome place you are staying in to provide such a luscious surprise cake!ReplyDelete
Your card is so delicate and beautiful, Di! I have never even heard of this lovely spider web material before. It's perfect with your telescoping bling and fragile butterfly!! Hugs, Darnell
Oh Happy Birthday Len! I hope you enjoyed that delicious looking cake! What a nice thing for your hotel to do & I'll bet he was surprised. Now to the lovely card: That says it all. Pure Lovely. Sheer genius to pair the laces in the 2 colors for drama behind your little fairy butterfly. So light, looks ready to lift off the card. Fancy having just the right pearls to embellish. TFS & HugsReplyDelete

How lovely, Di! That was a fabulous surprise for Len and it does look super delicious - love the decoration. I hope you've both had a fabulous day.ReplyDelete
