Milestone Birthday


I made this card for a friend's mother who recently turned 80. Her favorite color is blue, so I made this one in some pastel soft sky blue colors with white. The doily, ribbon, and dsp are all from SU!, and the numbers were done with an Impression Obsession set of number dies and coated with glossy accents. The birthday sentiment was done with Gina Marie designs dies and some heavy white cardstock. The white stems were done with a die from a "Leaves" set by Fantastic Flowers, and I added 2 different styles of flowers done with 2 different SU! mini punches, adding blue gemstones to the centers and randomly around the card.

I'm sharing this over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge which is to use a die and/or punch. I used both dies and punches in making this card.

Thanks for stopping by and do have yourself a fantastic day!

Such a pretty card, the doily is so fitting and works as a lovely mat for the '80'. The blue is a great choice softened with the white. I do like this, its classy x
