Back in September our beautiful daughter turned 18, a big milestone. It is hard to believe that the baby I held in my arms is now an adult! When sitting down to make her birthday card I wanted it to be very special so it took a good deal of planning.
I started with knowing I wanted to use the retired Fifth Avenue Floral rose as it is her favourite ever stamp. I had bought some black and white wrapping paper for her gifts so thought I would carry that theme to the card. Then to make it extra special I did a tri-fold card. Here is a picture of the card closed.
And another of it open. I have to say that this is the most embellished card I have ever made, and I couldn't consult with my usual blingologist as the card was for her! It took a while to get the balance of flowers, butterflies and ribbons just right, but I am really happy with the end result. I am also happy to say that the birthday girl was very happy with it too!
