My party creation this months is a card that I have made for a friends friend who also happens to be my window cleaner. Yepp! I have one of those. Hate cleaning of all kind but especially the windows so a few times each year we have a window cleaner here and he has now turned 30.
I had a request to use a pinup style of image but as that is not my style I found something in between with this beach babe from Kenny K. I love the 50's look to this image actually. And the gift for the window cleaner was a suitcase and a gift voucher for a travel. Favourite place? Brasil! Not for me, for him.
I have used a bunch of beach papers to make the card, to connect both to the traveling theme of the gift and to Rio de Janeiro where they usually go in February. I used a quite heavy glitter glue from Panduro to reflect water and also some hemp string to go with the theme. Stars are also for me connected to the sea. Maybe because sailors used to find their way on the sea with the help of the stars before we all got high tech. :)
