80th Birthday Card

A friend asked me to make an 80th birthday card for her mum. The only thing that she said was that it should be pretty and sparkly so hopefully this fits the bill. I went for an easel card with a Crafts Too embossing folder, MS doily lace punch. I also used Make the Cut and my Cricut to cut the flowers, letters and numbers (Curlz font). Everything is inked with SU Pretty in Pink and of course I added lots and lots of stickles. TFL as always and for any comments you care to leave. Apologies for the poor photos but it's been dull, dull, dull all day today.

This is so beautiful - your layout, embossing, punching, glittering, your flowers - all perfection!!
I'm looking at the Crealie leaves and sighing - my die has gone walkabouts, been missing for about a month now, turned the place inside out - suppose I should bite the bullet and get Annelies to pop me another one in the post.
