I made this as a birthday card for a friend of mine. She is only 5 days older than me! She has a very different style from what I typically make and I was trying to capture that. I think I did, because when I showed it to my husband asking, "is this her, or do I need to try again?" he said, "this is not your typical card, but it is elegant and she will love it". I'm so fortunate to have a husband that fully supports my crafting and can give me an honest opinion. No doubt due to his talented mother, thanks, Tammy! The wording is a bit hard to read on the first, but I hope the second shows it better.
The sentiment is a digtal stamp from Ginger, you can find it here. The roses are Penny Duncan's cut file. The corner swirl, a punch and the bottom swirls are embossed. The blue paper is The Paper Studio, and the brown is a patterned wall paper sample.
