My sister Valerie is three years and a day younger than me. It was my birthday on 12th July and hers on 13th, and for her it was a big one! She had a surprise birthday party on the Saturday and flew out on holiday the day after. For her big birthday I made her a big card, an 8x8" square. The card base was cut from white cardstock - I cut two scalloped squares then adhered them together down one side- with a matted square of patterned paper adhered flat. I cut a smaller square of the same paper, matted again, and adhered it offset with foam pads. I embellished the top right hand corner with a satin bow, white and aqua blooms and leaves die-cut from glittercard. I also added a pin. 'Valerie' & '50' were cut from glittercard then 'Valerie' was adhered flat and the '50' was adhered with foam pads. The sentiment was computer generated onto white cardstock, trimmed and matted, then adhered beneath the offset square with foam pads. A smattering of gems completes the card.

Carts used:
Scalloped card base- Elegant Edges
Valerie- Hannah Montana
50- Sophisticated
