Happy 75th Birthday Card

This card is constructed with Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery and Whisper White cardstock, grosgrain ribbon and coordinating designer paper (roses). The "Happy Birthday" was cut out using Sissix dies -- the card greeting series and the Endless Love for the 75th addition.  The roses were created using the Extra Large Fancy Flower punch (from Occasions mini catalogue).  Leaves were cut from the Extra Large Two-Step Bird.  The corners of the green cardstock were cut with the Pinking Hearts corner punch.

The card took a lot of time to fold, roll the edges and glue onto the cardstock (actually, used pop-up glue dots), but the finished product is beautiful -- like my mom, who it is intended for.

One problem -- it won't fit inside an envelope!  That's OK. It's going to accompany a gift, so can go inside the gift bag.  Wew!
