Happy Birthday

This card is for my Daughter -in-Law. 
It's her birthday today, so if you happen to be looking in Sara, HAPPY BIRTHDAY love!

I made the aperture with a Nestability fancy label die. 
I backed it with a piece of the same linen card that I embossed with the Sizzix Swiss Dots EF.
The flower is from the SU! set, 'Delight in Life' that I cut round and adhered with silicone for a bit of 'lift'.
The leaves and the 'S' were cut from Sizzix dies.
Three little red pearls balanced the card.

Here's a card I made for another Daughter-in-Law, using the actual die cut from the first card.

 The frame is a SU! EF and the 'C' is the Sizzix alphabet die again.
Two cards from one cut! BONUS!
Thanks for dropping in, it's always good to see you. 
Have a wonderful week!
