An 80th Birthday Card...

Looking back I seem to have made a few of these. (Cards for 80 year olds) This one I made for a lady I met through dog walking and Facebook. (I sent her this card when her little doggie had puppies!)  It was her Mum's 80th birthday and she asked, 'Please make me a card' about two days before... I stayed up most of the last night making it, trying to get myself into the right 'mood'.. Went to throat raw still coughing and splattering, then suddenly woke up and decided it wasn't right at all! So scrapped that (this one) and made another one in about an hour....(which she loved so much more!) such is life! (I'll show you that card in the next post. First this one.
The white flowers, are by Papermania and have had a ProMarker make-over so they match the backing papers. The papers are called Fairy Belle Collection, by Jodie-Lee, 24 sheets, 6 double-side designs/ 4 sheets per design, which came with a stamping set too from Simply Cards And PaperCrafts last year. I hate sticking down double-sided papers, don't you!?! Both sides are equally lovely.
 As there were bird cages and birds on the papers I used my Tim Holtz's bird cage Die-cut plus some of his flourishes too. I've also used a Martha Stewart lace border punch and a Woodware tiny leaf punch. The ribbon and pearls are from my stash. 
I've added stickles glitter to go with the shinny pinky/lilac mirror card and gems, plus a bluey card and a lilac card for layering. Everything's been edged with Vintage Brown Tim Holtz ink.
The sentiment I did on the computer. It's not been stuck down so I can remove it if I want to use the card for something else.
The font I used is a freebie on most sites, I've linked it before, I can't link them anymore, it's called, Abbeyline so just Google the name. Inside I've used more of the papers but left it blank. (I've since peeled off the sentiment inside, as I used Photo Glue it came off easy!)
I think that's it!  Coming up later will be the other card I made...completely different, but about the same size. (8x8) Thank you for stopping by!! I'd love to enter this card into a few ...
