Fourth Card Out of My Five Card Order

Morning peeps.  I have cheated today and I have delved into my made card box and pulled one out for the fourth card for my five card order.  It did have to have flowers as the main feature so this one fits the bill.  It is only A5 so that has filled the guidelines but it is very raised!!!  Oh dear, I will have to take cover!!  It is going to her friend that she sees quite a bit so she may have to hand it to her or pay the postage.  Lol!!

This is the original post when I first posted it on my blog:-

As this has been posted before I will not be entering any Challenges with it.

Thank you for looking

Cruise Ship

Hi Peeps.  Hope you are all well and are having some decent weather.  I think ours is yet to arrive!!! I got soaked yesterday going food shopping and it is likely to be the same today.

My card today is another one of my commissioned 5 card order.  I was just thinking that I was working well reducing them when another lady asked me if I would make a card for her daughter's 60th birthday.  Her hobby is Synchronised Swimming and the card needs to show this!!!  Three years ago I had enough trouble with her other daughter's as she works for the local football club and she wanted a lady playing football on the card.  Her Granddaughter's had to show a Radiologist on the card as that's her job.  All three I was told not to make feminine at all as they are not feminine in the slightest.

For today's card I was told it had to have a Cruise Ship on it as the man is always going on cruises. Lucky man that's what I say.  Lol!!!  Also no larger than A5 of course.
