Happy Birthday Girlfriend

Every year my best friend Chickie has a birthday. Chickie and I have been friends since kindergarten  and that is a long time, 50 years.  This is for Chickie....


I free handed the bodice (you can find templates on line) and ran it through a Spellbinders M- Bossabilities folder named Splendid.  The lace, flowers and leaves are Heartfelt Creations. The sentiment on the outside is from Crafty Secrets and the inside of the card is Heartfelt Creations.  I used Spellbinders  5 X 7  Matting Basics , Elegant Labels Four and Labels Four. The center of the flowers are Prills from USArt Quest with a pearl.  My ribbon is color ready ribbon from Close To My Heart which I dye with re-inkers.

...and Chickie loved her card.
