Birthday Wishes

Happy Saturday everyone!  I hope to get into my scrapbook room today and make at least a couple of cards.  I have one more birthday card to make for August (for a total of 12 this month) and I have three sympathy cards to make. 

Anyway, to the card at hand -- it is my Mom's birthday card.  I am quickly running out of ideas for cards for her, but thought she would always enjoy seeing an old photo of herself.  I started with this great K&Co. paper given to me by my friend Lynn.  I added the scalloped octagon Nestabilities die cut (with some purple pearls for an added touch) and a Making Memories glittered frame over the photo.  I made a lace flower by folding and twirling the lace over a punched circle and gluing as I went.  Then I added a Prima flower on top of that.  I also used a couple of EKSuccess border punches with some purple pearls.  The little butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch.  The birthday wishes tag was in my stash, but I think it is made by Making Memories.

On the inside I punched some flowers, added a border punched strip and my sentiment.  The flourish is a Sizzlit die.

Hope you like it!
