Happy 50th Birthday

It is my SIL's 50th Birthday on Monday, but we will be celebrating tomorrow.

Ofcourse, I made a card - however, it took quite some time for me to settle on a design - being for her 50th, I wanted it to be special.  Once inspiration hit, it was an easy task - my SIL is known for her love of shoes, shopping and cake - she also loves coffee too, but that is a theme for next birthday ;-)

50th Birthday Card - front
I was inspired by Betty's card HERE which was submitted for a challenge HERE

Seeing Betty's card reminded me I had some 8 x 8 scrapbook paper which would be perfect for the background.

50th Birthday Card - inside

I created the text for the birthday topper in Silhouette Studio and utilised Betty's cut file for the label shape.  I also enlarged the label and inserted a verse for the inside.

50th Birthday Card - money pocket
Left over strip from front, stuck in place on the inside to make a money pocket.

50th Birthday Card detail
Pink bling was the perfect size for the front.
