Birthday Greetings

I wanted to make an elegant birthday card for my aunt who is turning 75 next week. BasicGrey’s Cappella papers were just what I needed!

I used one more layout from this month’s Viva la Verve sketch challenges and embellished the card with self-adhesive half pearls and delicate cream ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!
