70th Birthday card

I needed a card in a hurry for a 70th birthday today,
I went to my box of cards for occasions (that I leave blank ready to add a greeting later)
and chose this one as I love the colours on it and knew that Rita would love it too.

I just added the scalloped circle , stamped with an Everything Eleanor stamp,
punched out the middle and die cut a 70 in Crisp Cantaloupe to pick out the colour 
from the (retired Sale-a-bration) DSP.
I added the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes and voila 
- a card finished off literally in minutes - managed to get it sent yesterday afternoon,
so Rita will have received it today for her special celebration.
Happy 70th Birthday!!
