Happy Birthday,Menai

I made this card for the eldest daughter of some very good friends of ours (you'll remember another card I made for her when she qualified as a doctor last month) as it's her birthday on Sunday. I found this layout whilst blog hopping on Carla Peicheff's blog (Moralia's weblog) and I love it! I used My Mind's Eye paper (again!), covering the front of the card with a vine patterned paper, overlaying it with another narrower strip with a punched edge. Over this I adhered a rectangular panel with faux stitching drawn onto it. Satin ribbon was wrapped around the panel and a bow & layered flower added. The whole panel was adhered to the front of the card with foam tape. I cut out the sentiment in black paper and the name in aqua glitter card. The name was raised with foam pads. 3 pearls on the ribbon and 3 more above the pink panel finish the card.
