Something for a Special Lady

I have a card to share with you which is for a very dear special lady, my lovely Friend/neighbour
will be 80 on Thurs..so I wanted to make a special elegant card for her.. this is something very different
to what I normally make.. I set out to use some of the new SB I just got..but best laid plans
it wouldn't work out with this image..& I really wanted to use it..the size is 8x6 base cream card.
the image I've had a long time from one of the free sites long before I started blogging..
I used greeting card factory programme to size the pic & printed it onto cream paper 4 times
so I could use nesties to decoupage.. matt & layerd with a scallop nestie frame.. the DP is
from Pinkpetticoat called Elegance..used a MS punched edge & layered the DP..the fancy
corner is another new SB but cut in half.. flower is SB shape, cream  rose WOC..the swiggly stems
are a Marianne die, pearl stems WOC.. black B/fly is a MS punch, B/D sentiment comp. generated,
black gems & ribbon from stash.. 

Sylvias BD
the inside is also decorated
