Celebrate 30 -- This Time A Card!

Happy Thursday everyone.  This is my daughter's birthday card from earlier this month.  I don't know how it slipped through without being posted!  Although she turned 30, and I could have really given her a tough time about it, I chose to make an elegant card for her.  I thought her friends would probably give her a tough enough time about having a "0" at the end of her age.  LOL.  We actually had a surprise party for her a few weeks ago, and she opened the card at that party.
Here is how the card was made:

Size 5 1/4" x 5 1/4"
Papers:  SEI Chick-A-Doo; Cardstock:  Bazzill
Doily:  Wilton
Blue Leaves:  Martha Stewart Punch (then I ran them through a crimper)
Fancy Corner:  Cuttlebug die
Gems:  Unknown
Daisy Flower Border:  Martha Stewart
Butterfly:  McGill Punch
Celebrate:  Straight from the Nest Cricut cartridge
Flower: Handmade (see instructions in this post)






Thanks for looking, and for your comments.
