Fabulous at 50!

Today I'm sharing a card that I made for my childhood friend who will be turning 50 in October. It's a significant milestone, I love to add all the fun and sophisticate details into it as much as possible...but that can be hard to do sometimes--like when do you "stop" layering and adding? I'm sure you can all relate to that!

When I made this card, I was determined to use the following elements: Pattern paper, lots of SRM Stickers and stamping. I stare at the Cosmo Cricket paper ( Upcycle) for the longest time!  I stamped the flowers with this Real Flowers  set from Hero Arts. This is what I came up with.
Make a Wish
I added the hand stitching and a flower for the final touches. Since it's girl-friend themed,  I am entering this to the Paper Crafts August Challenge . Hope you have a FABULOUS day (whether you are in your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s...)!
