Last weekend my parents went to a birthday party of an old friend who they had not seen in about ten years. They caught up with this couple at a New Year's party last month and ended up going to the wife's birthday party with another close couple. When talking about what to get Mirta they decided to go in on a basket to include a nice bottle of wine and a gift certificate to a really nice restaurant. The problem was that they needed a card, where would they get a card?! So they called me and asked for a purple birthday card, simple enough, right? I had no idea where to start but I remembered the sneak peak I had created for the stamp set 'Sealed with a Kiss' from Paper Pretties and decided to use the same paper and ribbon. I loved the combination and I think this card really works again, the overall look really seemed to come together. I pulled out my My Favorite Things 'You Take the Cake' stamp set and used the floral cake, my favorite image in that set, its just so pretty! The overall look became a really classy card that not only I love, but so did the birthday girl. Success! Hope you enjoyed today's card!
