Birthday Card

Hello Everybody,

today I like to show you a birthday card I made for my aunt. She is celebrating her 81. birthday and Mother's Day this Sunday. I think it turned out pretty. I love Lemon Tart from PTI but then I had a heck of a time trying to decide what other color of paper to use. I like the chocolate and yellow combination but thought it might be too dark. I wanted it to look elegant, not sweet. The sweet pea image from Karen Lockhart added enough "sweet"...hehehe. The chocolate CS, the Lemon Tart Bitty Dot Basics and the Lemon Tart ribbon are all from PTI. I used copics to color the flowers and added Periwinkle and Sunflower Shimmerz to the flowers. The vase I covered with Diamond Glaze. I used a SU punch for the little brown flowers and for the centers I used pearl Dew Drops. The sentiment is from WOJ. Finally my relatives will receive cards with German greetings. The greeting and the scalloped ovals were cut with my oval Nesties. On the inside I used the circle Nesties for the birthday wish and the flowers are again cut with the SU punch and again added Pearl Dew Drops.

So, how do you like the pleated border. I love it. It is the second time I used it. Becky Oehlers, one of the PTI designers showed it a while back and I just fell in love with it.

I hope you like the card.
