Happy 49 + 1 Birthday

Hello to you all in the land of blog
Today I get to show you a commissioned card that a very good friend asked me to create for his wife, when I asked him what he wanted and asked some questions, he said not to confuse him and basically just create.  So here is what I created and I hope she likes it.
I made an 8 x 8 inch card, with some gorgeous Papermania Collection papers that are opposite, one on the inside and one on the out.  I used my MS corner punch to make addition details on the corners and computer generated the 49 +1 and his personal sentiment as requested.  I used my grand oval and scallop oval die, and added some little lace available from Grimsby Crafts under the black scallops.  I then lovingly distressed the edges of the inner sentiment plate and the outer one, along with the previously white flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I added some little pearls and some stickles platinum to finish it off, along with one lone butterfly.

Here  is the creation straight on
I tucked a little pearl heart just near the flowers

Here is a close up of the flower spray
I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave me such inspirational and kind comments, and this then allows me to hop on over and visit you in return.

I would like to remind you all that my 800 follower candy is now running and can be entered here
