Happy Birthday, Dear Karla ...

My sweet daughter in law will be celebrating her 34th birthday on February 2.  I thought I'd make her a card, I know she will love and appreciate it so much!
She wears blouses with jackets, so I thought I'd replicate the card with a lapel, an "open collar" and buttons down the sides using the light, lime green half pearls.  I also used pop dots under the turned down open collar to give it lift.

The lace at the bottom of the card, matches the backing of the flower.
I made the flower using coffee fliters, glimmermist and just a bit of glitter around the sides.  The other emblishments are a chain, a key cross, matching ribbon, and some gem and pearl strands I picked up at an Estate sale.  The back of the tag I used for a personal birthday message.
This does fit in my large maling envelope (Invitation Envelope).  I like to make sure for future reference, I can duplicate my cards, I would add bubble wrap, a bit of extra tape and of course extra postage!

Happy Birthday, Karla!
