40th Birthday

Hi, thanks for stopping by. Hope everybody enjoyed the long weekend break. It seems to have gone very quickly and now it's all back to normal. This is one of my many milestone birthday cards I need this year.

My Card

Click on image to enlarge picture

My base card was made from  pale yellow pearlescent card and measures 5 x 7 inches. I used white pearlescent card to diecut the pieces from SB Detailed Scallops and Radiant Rectangles. The sentiment was computer generated - of course. I just had to add some pearls and that is it. Some of the layers were lifted with thin foam tape, although in the picture it appears very flat.I didn't want it to stand too high because it has to go in the mail. These dies are so pretty and very intricate, but a piece of baking paper did the trick.

Well just a quick post today.

Love and hugs from Christine xx
