Happy 80th Birthday!

Hi Everyone!

I made this card for my Mother in law's 80th birthday. She is such a sweetheart and she really doesn't look or act 80! She is a very kind lady who welcomed me into her family with open arms! I've known
 her now for 12 years and she's the same now as when I first met her! 

I used my new Simon Says Stamp "Circle Sayings" set to make this a shaker card. I used paper from one of my favourite papers Pink Paislee's Bella Rouge 6x6 collection. I love the sequins you can get from Pretty Pink Posh! Her colour combinations are awesome! 

I added some paper flowers along with some pearl sprays as my embellishments.

Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, R20
Hair: E43, E44, E47
Flowers, leaves & hair band: R81, R83, R85, YG63
Cake: R81, R83, R85, Y26, C0
Outline: B000
Dress: Paper pieced

Here's the inside of my card. 

I used one of the smaller SSS Circle sayings on the inside.

We had a lovely surprise Party For her Saturday with all her 4 children, their spouses, 6 of her Grandchildren and 2 of her Great Grandchildren in attendance! She was completely surprised and thrilled that we all got together! Family really is what it's all about!

Chat at you later!
