new card 60th birthday


i was asked to make a 60th birthday card for a friends wife who loves shopping and is young at heart so here it is i have put several views in the side bar and will also put it in the slide show as it has 8 sides to it
hope you like it
it was made with 6x6 card covered with anna griffin papers
die cuts from the cricut expression using the following carts
celebration
new arrival (cut out the pregnant mom and trimmed her tummy)
tags,bags and boxes
embossing folders using the cuttlebug
sizzix dress shoe and hat box die

had to box it as too thick for envelope
used prima flowers and bling to decorate box with tag made with expression
also sprayed it lighty with mount glue and sprinkled with glitter

GET OUTTA MY HEAD, WOMAN!!! I started something very very similar to this with black/ivory toile pattern paper, and TURQUOISE instead of pink. Really gorgeous!
