80th Birthday!!

I made this card for a very special Aunt on her 80th Birthday. The lovely flapper image is from Free Vintage Digital stamps.  A touch of color was added to the headband before I adhered the glass beads over the image. 

Designer paper is K & Company, love the pretty pastel pink.  Butterflies were cut on my Silhouette Cameo and covered in pearlized smooch and then glossy accents. The gothic stained glass window die is from Poppystamps.  A triple bow was tied around Recollections glass flower embellishments to finish the card off.

                                                         Inner card was designed to pop up a gift card. 
The sentiment was stamped using a  Hero arts stamp.


I used the same double sided designer paper from K& Company for my doily top box. Box is a Samantha Walker design from the Silhouette store.

Outer box finished off with tags and bow.
