Commissioned sunflower card

Good morning all,  I hope you are all well or getting there...hugs
I'm in a tearing hurry this morning so will have to be brief!
I will have to pop back later to catch up on your blogs.

I was asked for 50th birthday card but must not put 50 on it! (rubbing salt into the wound perhaps) and it had to have this one of my sunflower photographs on it.
A4 ivory linencard folded and cut to 7x5.
Photograph and text printed onto same card, then cut with Spellbinders oval die, then attached with sticky foam pads to raise it.
White stickyback pearls coloured with Copic pen.
That's really all there is to say about it, although I am happy to report that both customer and recipient were very pleased with it, thank goodness :o)
