Comissioned card

I always feel a bit stressed when I get asked to make a special card for someone...
 
 
...Because I always dread that they will hate it and have to pretend to me, that they love it!
 
A friend at work asked me for a card recently...
"It's for a 17 yr old girl...she'd love her name on it.
Shes also mad for Taylor Swift...and can you put "special niece " on it somewhere?!?! "
(I thought Taylor Swift was a fella,  'till I googled the name
and found it was a female!)
As soon as I spotted the pic, I knew what I wanted to do with it.
The flowers and butterflies are from my little punches.
The background is embossed with swiss dots.
The bird on a branch is a marianne die.
I handwrote her name, and the sentiment,
and drew (and hand-cut) the bottom edge of the red. I love the shape!
 
She loved the card!   :)  xx

I am not surprised she loved the card it is absolutely fabulous, I love how you have put it all together, you would never guess you hand wrote the name and sentiment it looks computer generated it is so neat. xx
