Celina 29 years

An easter inspired birthday card for my friend Celina! I've added it to the Simon Says Challenge, which calls for cards in yellow and green. There's not a lot of green, but it's there.
I might have gone a bit overboard with the Glimmermist here, but hey, I have to try it out, right? All the flowers have been sprayed with Glimmermist Pearl and/or Sunflower. Even the crochet flower (recipe here) have recieved the same treatment. The "mist" part is clearly visible as the white thread has taken on a strong orange colour, but the "Glimmer" part is less apparent. Oh well, there should be enough glimmer on this card anyway.

And how neat is that ribbon? It's made from several many-coloured paper threads (similar to Scrapper's Floss) woven together, and can be stretched very wide to show off the individual threads like I've done here. I found that the easiest way to get it like this was to shape it onto a low-tack tape, spray it with spray glue, turn it over and attatch it to the card while carefully removing the tape. Finally, I trimmed the edges and secured them with some ordinary craft glue.

The "price tag" on the inside came as set in the form of a punched pattern paper. In case you can't read it from the picture, it says: "Smile - XS: Extra Sweet - (barcode) Priceless". So cute. ;) I can't wait to use more of these.
