A birthday card for a wonderful friend!

 Good morning all!

Well its Friday (thank goodness) and only a few hours left to work before the weekend begins!

Today I have a card I made this week for one of my very good friends. Now, I used a retired stamp for this card admittedly, but it's one of my all time favorite sentiments and I will never part with it. I combined it with the delicious SU Everyday Enchantment papers that are back by popular demand for the month of July only, I just love these papers!

So without further ado here it is....

 A close up of the flower embellishment and gorgeous brad (available free this month if you spend £45 or more)...

 The simple inside.....

 and a matching envelope I made using the gorgeous papers...

A  framelit label tag was added to the patterned front so you can write the name of the recipient more clearly


CS: SU Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade and Whisper White

Paper: Everyday Enchantment  (Available for the month of July only!!)

Stamps: SU Posy Punch (Hostess set), Happiest Birthday Wishes (Hostess set),  Occasional Greetings (Retired)

Tools: SU Fancy Flower punch, Labels Collection Framelits Dies, In colour 2011-2013 markers, and sponge for distressing
Misc: Everyday Enchantment brad (free when you spend £45 or more in July)

Well I hope you like today's card, I'm glad to say my friend did.
Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend, whatever you're up to.

Hugs, Victoria ~x~
