My Nan's 90th Birthday card

Hi everyone,

Well, this was what my Paris and England trip was all about, surprising my Nan in England for her 90th Birthday! She was very excited to see my sister and I and we had a wonderful time catching up with her and all our family there. Paris was a little side trip which was amazing!! 

Anyway, lol, back to my card, I printed out the sentiments on my printer. First I printed them on normal paper then lined the sentiments up and lightly stuck my patterned paper over the normal paper then re-printed it so it printed on my tags. Easy!!

The gorgeous bling flowers are a new addition to Flourish with a Bling's beautiful range of products and you can check them out by clicking HEREIf you mention my blog (Lucy) when ordering we will send you a bonus Jasmine laser flourish!
