Lovely in lilac.....and a birthday jar.

I have been playing with cards for a couple of days and only just managed to get some decent light for the photos. This lilac and pink one is rather glittery and very girly and has a lovely little silver flower charm suspended by fine silver chain. Its based on some pink bazill bling and has various scraps of papers plus some primas and other blossoms, just edged then with some punched out ash leaves.

I made this big card a few days ago and blogged it then, but today I decorated a gift jar to match the card. Its for a very good friend of mine who I am spending the day with tomorrow. Its actually her birthday today, so we will be celebrating a day late....but whats a day between friends.

I filled the jar with chocolate truffles and an organza bag which contains a murano glass heart on a silver chain, which matches a pair of earrings that I made her for Christmas. Hope she likes it :).xxx


  1. More beautiful cards Anita and love that gift jar too - really beautiful, I am sure she will love them both. Do we get to see the necklace once you have given it?

  2. Thanks Karen :). She really did like them thank goodness, I was am chuffed. I didn't think to take a photo of the necklace though....doh! Sorry. I will try to borrow it back sometime and snap it ok.
