Black and White Birthday


I have made this card for a new friend that I have met since moving to Dubai. Our hubbies work together and she is giving me cooking lessons as well as keeping me sane!!

Her house is all in white (so I have a heart attack whenever my two kids go to her house..!!). She loves black and white so hey ho, this is what I came up with.

  • fabric flowers from ebay
  • ribbon recycled from dress
  • pearls from Artymiss
  • sentiment done on a Dynamo machine (my new toy!)
Thank you to the very lovely Chris who explained to me how to do the ribbon like this!! Hope you like it!
