40th Birthday card

Hi everyone :)

It's my friend's 40th birthday tomorrow and this is the card I've made for her.
The papers I've used are Echo Park - Victoria Gardens. The sentiment and age are cut out with the Silhouette Cameo and layered on a journaling card (from the reverse side of one of the papers).  The flourishes are die cut with the Marianne frames and swirls die in the Big Shot and the flowers are Green Tara.  I added a tiny strip of paper through the holes of the button instead of thread.

I'm off now to try and get a birthday card made before the children come home from school
~ the dishes and housework will have to wait!

Thank you for visiting today
I'll be back tomorrow with a gift bag for a baby
(and a tutorial for it, if I can get my photos sorted and the instructions written up in time!).
Take care
Sarah xx
