I  was commissioned to make a card for a special little lady called Ruby for Christmas but mum wanted a princess  non traditional themed card lots of pink and glitter! so out came the new S.W.A.L.K digital Cd Rom and off I went pink crazy and the whole card was sprinkled in glitter!

                    Here is pic of the whole card an A4 easel with box to match

This was one of  23  which was my last Christmas card commission so I will try to blog as many as I can.
