Eileen's Birthday

Tomorrow is one of my friend (and fellow crafter), Eileen's birthday.
She will be 70 years young!.
I decided against putting a number on this card as I was very happy with the finished result,
to have added anything, I think, would have spoiled it.

Colour combo of this is a very simple Silver and White.
The diagonal striped vellum (Silver Fancy Foil Designer Vellum from the Spring Summer Catalogue) )was cut to cover the front of the card with a half inch wrap-over,
at the back, which was stuck down.
Two holes were punched in the front,  1/2" in from the spine and about an inch apart,
and the  Silver 1/8" ribbon was threaded through and tied in a bow.
The Silver Designer frame was embossed then cut out and stuck onto
 a rectangle of white card to make the picture frame effect.
 The Petite Petals flowers were stamped in Versamark, then heat embossed
with Silver embossing powder, cut out with the matching punch and the petals curled.
The Silver leaves are cut with the Bird Builder punch.
The sentiment (from Petite Pairs stamp set) was similarly heat embossed
using Silver embossing powder, punched with the large oval punch, 
then layered onto a punched silver Scallop Oval.
I used double sided tape to attach the vellum to the front of the card
behind the frame and behind the oval where it would not be visible.
I do hope that Eileen likes this - I loved making it!!
