A Big 75th Birthday

I was asked by a colleague in work if i could make a card for a 75th Birthday as she was finding it difficult to find a card. I always worry when asked to make a card that they will like it and that i will get it right, I'm sure we are all the same? This card is a massive 8x8 card, so takes a great deal of filling but I think it makes it that bit more special. The papers are from the SU designer paper range, they always contrast so well. The main image is a decoupage i had in my collection, been ages since i have used my snips and silicone glue lol...The greetings have been printed on the PC, ovals cut out with oval SU punches. I think she was pleased with the card, although haven't seen her as yet lol.... but i did get some feed back from the staff in work :) Now does anyone know where i can get some good quality 8x8 cards and envelopes from ?

Hi Sonia,
Don't worry about this card - it is brilliant! The layout works so well and I think the MS border down the left hand side looks amazing.
I'm sorry, but I can't help you with 8x8 cards and envelopes.
