50th Birthday

Good morning all. Hope everyone is well.

We had a lovely relaxed lunch yesterday, luckily hubby doesn't drink so I enjoyed some rose wine and champers with mine!  The menu was just a three course lunch with three choices per course and looked like it might be a bit rich for a dicky stomach but what I ordered was delicious and as it was just small portions so not overly filling.

This is the card I made for the birthday girl.


Decoupage image and the layered paper are from Cuddly Buddly; dies from Spellbinders and Marianne Design; lace, button, felt, sentiment, peel off, charm and card candy from my stash. Card candy has been topped with some green stickles. Apologies about the colours, my greens are a bit off!!
