50th Birthday - Basic Grey Challenge


So I have an order for some 50th birthday cards, she specifically wanted art deco decoupage, not my usual thing at all, although I do like these images, from a CD by Card Creations. The challenge over on the Basic Grey site this week is ' all round', so I reckon this one fits the bill, the card is scalloped, and I cut away half of the front so that the oval image stands out. The papers are from the BG sugared collection, and the 'fabulous' is by Hero Arts. The 50 is thickers by American Crafts.
