Cards of All Shapes and Sizes, Let's Get Hopping Blog Hop

Today the Let's Get Hopping crew are sharing cards of all different shapes and sizes!

There are some occasions that call for an extra special project - something a bit different than our usual A6 card design.  Milestone Birthdays definitely fall in this category!  This week my beautiful Mum celebrates her 60th birthday and so I made this double z-fold card just for her.

A big thank you to Natalie from Stamp Witch Blog.  I was grateful for her template.  I adjusted the size to make my square a bit bigger than Natalie's original design, but having her template to work off made the whole process so simple!

The colour scheme was inspired by my friend Cindy Schuster.  I found a piece of gorgeous retired Watercolor Wonder designer series patterned paper in my stash.  Its soft florals are a close match to the pretty Petal Pink, which I found to be a great tone-on-tone tie in with the Cajun in this palette.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my card today!  Click the 'next' link below to see what unusual sized card my crafty friend Teresa has to share today!
