Custom orders are my favourite. Sometimes the more offbeat the request, the better the card! This was a request for a card to suit a ‘picnic’ theme for a first birthday party. With inspiration from a range of places, the final result was a sneaky ant stealing a birthday cupcake! The Gingham Garden DSP lends itself so perfectly this this theme, so I knew I had to use it! The Mummy of the birthday girl is a fan of handmade delights, so I know she’s going to love it! Happy Birthday to little Lucy! Hope your picnic party is fabulous. Kelly x
