Zig Zag Card for a Special Person

Earlier this month it was the birthday of my lovely friend Neet, of Hickydorums Blog, who many of you will know. 
I hardly ever make birthday cards these days but I had to make a special one for such a special friend so I broke into my stash of "My Minds Eye" Lost & Found papers to make this version of a Zig Zag card.
I thought it was a good idea to use a die cut circle to extend the top of the card into a more pleasing shape.
I went to town on this version adding decoration to almost every surface and really enjoyed making it.
Hope I manage to meet up with Neet soon, we've been like trains in the night this year!

Beautiful card Jo. Love those MME papers and the die you've used for cutting the circle. So skilfully pieced together. Neet I'm sure will adore it. Have a great Easter. Pxx
