80th Birthday Card

This is a card I made for an order for an 80th Birthday card.

The papers, cardstock, image & ribbon are all Stampin Up. I've also used my new SU Scalloped Trim border & corner punches for the first time. These have taken a bit of practice to use but make a lovely border decoration once you've got the knack!!

The little Raspberry flat back pearls & the clear crystals are from my stash.

I've made ore of the lovely vellum flowers I like to make so that I can enter this card in to this weeks Cute Card Thursday challenge!

I just love this thick vellum which is also from SU as it is so easy to emboss without fear of the embossing tool going through the vellum. I finished the flowers off with the Boho Blossoms punch & some tiny pearl beads.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges
