Happy Birthday to my lovely Daughter

Happy Birthday Andrea!  It doesn't feel like 35 years since you were born - I don't know where the time has gone! I made this special card for you using this Cath Kidston type paper matted onto plain card.  I added some 32mm rose pink pure silk ribbon from here.    The silver Thickers numbers from stash were adhered to a nestie tag then glittered with Stickles Stardust. 

I typed the sentiment, printed onto white card and matted onto plain dark pink card then added more Stickles.

I finished the card with a selection of pink flowers and rose buds from Wild Orchid (the ones Andrea bought me for Christmas) and some green leaves punched with my new Martha Stewart Punch.  The final touch was a couple of tiny pearl bead hearts from WOC.  Happy Birthday Andrea, love from Mam xx (I like this card so much I might enter it into a few challenges)

What a wonderful Birthday card & I'm sure Andrea loved it. My daughters love to get cards from me & are almost insulted now if I resort to sending a store bought one.
Hugs, Janie
