For a Special Birthday

Hello, Janice here with you today to share an 85th birthday card on the
  Dies R Us Inspiration Blog.
I made this card for one of my friends to give to her Mum.
 I added a couple of mats in purple and white card to my base white card.
Using another piece of white card, I placed the Sue Wilson Designs, Gemini - Pavo
dies along the edge of the card and ran it through my cutting machine. 

With the Crafters Companion 'Distress' embossing folder, I embossed a piece 
of purple card to position underneath the Pavo edge.
Using two sizes of the Spellbinders Labels Eighteen, I cut the larger 
one in purple and the smaller in white.

I then cut two Sue Wilson Designs - Petite Arched Adornment from 
the Configurations Collection in white card 

These Arched Adornments were laid flat onto the card, positioned to frame the labels, 
which I layered with foam pads to add some depth.

To complete the card I shaped the top two corners with a corner punch, added the sentiment, 
the number, punched flowers and some pearl gems to the top two corners, 
flower centres and as extra decoration to the Pavo edge.

Here are the dies I have used, the links are in the description above.
