Birthday Card for My Second Daughter

My second daughter's favorite color is red. She has had quite a year turning lemons into lemonade. After losing her job in this economy she moved across country and started her own Concierge business. Just a month ago she became a grandmother of the most beautiful girl. Her birthday is today. She will be celebrating by seeing her new granddaughter for the first time.

The 6.25 X 5.25 card was designed using the Gypsy and cut on the Cricut Expression

Happy Birthday(Storybook cartridge) letters were welded together, two sets cut from glitter paper and glued one on top of the other. The scalloped circle( Lovely Floral cartridge) with ribbon thread through it was an idea I saw on another blog, but I don't remember who it was thank you very much for the great idea. The corners also come from the Storybook cartridge.

The scalloped ring is attached to the card using pop ups

The quote inside the card is from DCWV

The A7 envelope was made using the Martha Stewart Scoreboard.
