For a friend’s birthday tonight.

I have used this quote quite a bit in the past, but have rested it for the last few years.  However this design and layout is new, I wanted something fresh and colourful.

Envelope is below the cut.

I added a burgundy swipe of ink down the left size of the envelope to add some framing.  The top and bottom flower were punched from the same paper used on the card.  The middle one is from a pack of flowers I have and I swiped the edges with ink.  The white pearl didn’t work on the white flower, so I added a wine coloured gem instead.

Overall I am very happy with the card and I’m glad to have taken this stamp out of retirement.  The quote is very elegant and one of my favourites.
