A Special Birthday Card

Good morning all. 
Yeah...the weekend is almost here. I hope you have something fun planned.

I needed to make a birthday card for a fabulous gal who really epitomizes the saying "70 is the new 50" !  She is a very successful business woman, award winning cross-stitcher and wonderful friend to all who know her.    No pressure here right....I had to bring my A game for this one!

First time using my new Marianne Anja die (had it for several weeks now) and I love how delicate it looks. Once around with the Dyson was needed after cutting this much confetti on the craft room floor....but well worth the effort.

DP - SU Pink Pirouette
Bazzill White
Flowers & Lace:  WOC
Large pearl - gift from a friend
SB Parisian Accents edger die

Whoa! I don't even know what to say. (a first for me) - GORGEOUS - so elegant and delightful! Thanks for the warning about this confetti-producing die, as I have a virgin Marianne die similar to this, so I'll be careful moving it around to keep the confetti off the floor! LOL A lovely box to house your special gift card. Your friend will treasure it. Pat, I just realized why I'm so smitten with your blog. It's full of love. Everything you create is delightfully charming, sweetly gorgeous. I can just imagine the magic your hands create as your heart thinks what to do. Thanks for sharing with these terrific photos. hugs, de
