Fanciful Silver Mambo birthday

A friend for whom I made this birthday card, gave me Blossoms & Butterflies printed paper stack by DCWV which has some scrumptious designs so right for summer. I decided that the printed silver and deep pink went perfectly with Stampin'Up Melon Mambo cardstock. With the silver swirls, flowers & butterflies, I didn't need to add much embellishments. I mounted the patterned paper on a piece of textured silver I had as a scrap, stamped Happy Birthday on it and punched out the ovals which were mounted with demensionals. A very quick and easy card. My friend had forgotten she had given me the paper so she is happy to have a reminder of her gift to me. She was also happy to receive the retiring cardstock I had ordered for her and some surprise stamp sets that she didn't have. I really like to give my friends gifts that I know will make them happy, don't you?

Have a wonderful weekend and always remember to thank God for the friendships He has provided!
