30th Birthday card

It was my daughter's 30th Birthday yesterday.  I can't believe that the time has gone so quickly!! it only seems like yesterday that she little running around in the garden.
I've made many types of cards for her in the past and didn't really know what to do this time until I saw a cool idea for a card on Pinterest.. so I did this one for her.

 

This is the card flat before it is curved around the narrower card beneath  the topper.


 I selected 10 patterned papers that I knew she would like and cut 3 strips of each measuring 2" x 3" approx. then roled each one up and glued on the card. The 'flames' are the waste from a large border punch I have.  I added a pretty gem on each flame just for a bit of bling.



 The pretty lace along the bottom is one that I designed for Joanna Sheen called Samantha Lace Ribbon.  The curved front is because I left a flap on the right to tuck onto a smaller card beneath.. using velcro tabs to hold it there.  I wanted it to give the impression of a top of a cake Lol.. not sure it does but it looks quite good curved.  My Daughter really liked the card when I gave it to her yesterday :) .. and that's the main thing Lol.
Thanks for visiting today I will be back soon!
