A Special Birthday...

A dear friend recently had a milestone birthday, and it required a pretty special card.

Materials:  Stamps:  Curly Cute, Tea Shoppe;  Paper:  Shimmer White, Pool Party, Melon Mambo; Ink:  Melon Mambo, Pool Party; Other:  Simply Scored, Basic Pearls, Paper Snips, Labels Framelits, Big Shot, Striped Embossing Folder

Anita loves pink, and is famous for her love of tea parties - so of course, you know which stamp set I immediately thought of!  The Melon Mambo and Pool Party colour combination is bright and fun, while still girly.  It is impossible to tell from the photograph, but the white card stock is Shimmer White, which is very pretty in real life.  I jazzed it up with a simple chequered background made with the Simply Scored and little adhesive pearls on the intersecting lines.  Sponging the edges also gave depth and texture.


And here is the inside:
