Happy 40th

Tomorrow is a dear friends 40th I made the following card to celebrate.  She loves my plan is to go and put a gift card in there also.

I used my scrap papers I had for everything except the card base.  I love how it turned out.  Have you noticed I'm on a 'pink' kick lately?  :)

I used the Forever Young cartridge for this card....sorry, I don't remember which art I used for the banner.  I don't remember what size's the cuts were at since I worked on this a couple weeks ago...but I think she was cut at around 4".  I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the pink border.  The letters for "Happy" and the bling ("40") are from letter sets that I bought at Michael's.

And.....thanks to Okie's (check out her blog here) inspiration, I gave sewing a try.  I love, love, love, the extra something the sewing adds.  I will definitely be doing more sewing on my cards in the future.  Thanks Okie!!  Here is a close-up picture of the border I sewed.

Hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have a great day.....
