Fifty and Fabulous

Goodmorning Everyone!  I hope that you all have a beautiful day!  The sun is shining here and it looks like its going to be a fabulous start to the long weekend.  I hope that you get to enjoy time with your loved ones and the little ones enjoy the Easter festivities.

I am almost all caught up with my posts, but today I am back to share with you another Birthday card.  This card was ordered for a very special birthday and I was super happy to be asked to create it for her.  It was a nice chance to work with a colour scheme I haven't worked with before, and use a couple of products that I haven't used in the past.  The colours on this card are incredible, and it is so CLASSY and fancy for such a special occasion. I am soooooo happy with how this card turned out, the only thing I would change is the colour of the paint splatter to match the pattern paper, or vice versa.

Here's the front of the card...
