A basket of flowers

Happy Friday friends,
Just a quick post to share a card I made for a 90th birthday. Last Sunday we were invited to a beautiful tea party to celebrate the birthday of a very gracious lady. It was a lovely afternoon with all her family and a few selected friends, so we felt very honoured. This is the card I made for her.

Cut the front out with a die, and inked the edges with walnut stain. The basket is a Marianne Design die, also coloure with wlnut stain. Flowers were a mixture of Olba punches, and small hand punches, with bling or pearl centres. The corner scroll is a Cuttlebug die and finished off with pearls. The inside I used paper from a Marianne vintage pad.

I have to dash out, but will be back later to enter this in a challenge or two..I have found the following challenges to enter:

Party Time Tuesdays #81..Garden Delights
Tammy's Scrapin Corner#23..Add some flowers
Have a wonderful Friday and enjoy the weekend. Take care and see you soon.
