Flag card

This card was created for a 60th birthday request. I wanted to come up with an elegant, sophisticated design, and equally distinguished colours and look, so I was delighted to find in my stash gorgeous purple cardstock, lilac vellum and glittered papers from K&Company (Pad's Life) which I got from Joann's a few months ago.

With regards the design - Just a few weeks ago I was teaching some fellow crafters how to make a Flag album and only last week I came across this card by the talented Paula Pascual. A flag card! (well, not sure how Paula calls it, this is what I would call it anyway). I love flag albums {I am nearly finished with my third one actually :-)}, and I simply adored the idea of using a similar design to create a card. So I decided to give it a go and I came up with this card, using flag albums and Paula's card as inspiration. Hope you like it.
