Happy Birthday - Milestone Birthdays

Hi everyone, thanks for joining me from the Card A Day Blog.  Today's theme is Milestone Birthdays.  My younger sister is turning something with a 0 at the end, or should I say 39 again, and here is a card for her.  I do have the cutting instructions listed below.

I started by cutting the inside panel out of the Paper Lace cartridge and matting it onto green then onto the tan cardstock.  I used a piece of the striped pattern paper for the main background panel.

After cutting out and gluing the flowers together I placed them where I wanted them to go then added the die cut leaves and punched branches.  When I had them where I wanted them I added glue to hold them together.  I then added stickles to the center of the flowers.

For the inside I matted the white cardstock onto a piece of the blue then use a small unlayered flower
with the branches and leaves.  It is a bit bulky but the card will be put in a box for my sister along with her present.

I hope you enjoyed today's card and thanks for stopping by.
