50th Birthday

Another rush order, the card was asked to contain, green, Irish, wine, glamour, princess and the name Iris of the recipient and she has a sense of humour!  I knew instantly what I would use for glamour as I had used this image before. I  have had it for quite a few years.

I put together and made a couple extra parcels from DP's, placed a wine bottle and glasses and then added a crown for good measure. I also found a shamrock I had from somewhere, one of those lost names I'm afraid, and placed it on 2 of the parcels.  I thought the font added a light touch.  Not too much on this one, but it took me 3 hours in PS, no colouring by me though for a change, but the placing & deciding (the worst part) then deciding what I would do on the inside and finding a verse etc etc. I then printed another hat and scarf and umbrella and the front of the cloth and 3'd them onto the card.  I'm pleased with it and I love the images.  It's not quite as purple as here IRL I also added Stickles on the parcels and her hat.
