Happy Birthday Cousin Peaches

This a card I made for my cousin "Peaches" she celebrated her 60th Birthday on the 15th of August, but today is the celebration for all who were invited to come to her Birthday Party!
I designed this card using her favorite colors of purple, lavender with accents of green.
I made my own minature white doily by using my MS corner punch I then shaded the doily with SU ink "Lovely Lilac"
The method used was to punch in the round....if you check out the video tutorials you will find plenty of info on how this is done.
I overlayed the doily with a template from Spellbinders calle "Fancy Tags Two"...I then accented the template with my SU stamp of "Happy Birthday"...I also decided that this card could use a little bling, so from my stash I added a fleur of rhinestones...a pearl head pin was used to add some addl grey glass pearls, a organza flower with the perfect center of a gem in purple from "Recollections" completes the look. Under the flower I use gro-grain lavender ribbon, and green organza ribbon to add a touch of green..I also used my sizzix die of "Branch w/leaves" to complete the floral arrangement!
The card base & papers were from my stash cut @ 7 1/2"x5" and the corners were rounded.
I hope this card will inspire you to make a classy, sophisticated card for someone you know that is reaching a great milestone!
Thanks for stopping by today...& remember
Keep your creative mind working.....
