My Best Friends Birthday Card...


I am SO lucky to have a wonderful friend who just celebrated her 30th birthday. You know that friend, who I hope everyone has, who is the only one you can tell everything? Well, this is her birthday card from me, and I hope she loved it! This is a pic of the card as well as the tags that fill the two pockets. Below is the card put together and a description of the card and supplies...
I used SU Fall Flowers DSP. The colors in this paper are Soft Sky and Old Olive, I didn't have any Soft Sky, so I used Bashful Blue instead. This card is made using an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of DSP folded and cut to make this double pocket card. Instead of using Sticky Strip to tape the edges together like I normally do, I stuck the sides in my Bind It All, then threaded ribbon through the holes. The flowers on the front are SU Die Cut Blooms, which I LOVE!!! Stamp set is Inspired by Nature for the grass and the flower, Flight of the Butterfly, and the sentiment is from It's Your Birthday. I wrote the personal message on the back of the larger tag.
All items SU except ribbon (source unknown) and pearl on front from Mark Richards. I also used the Round Tab punch (SU) for the top of the first tag. I really like how this turned out, and my friend loved it, so all is well. I hope I still have her in my life 30 more years from now!

What a beautiful set! I love the colors you used and I would not have been able to tell that you used the fall flowers dsp if you had not mentioned it.
