Congratulations

My sweet friend Kay celebrated her birthday recently. I would have loved to be with her on that special day to wish her a happy birthday in person. I miss her a lot and often think back to last October when we met each other for the very first time. She is such a wonderful person and a great friend. Here's the card I made for her using one of our favorite brands....October Afternoon.



Supplies: Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Rustic Cream) | Patterned paper: October Afternoon (The Thrift Shop, Fly A Kite) | Button: Papertrey Ink (Aqua Mist) | Felt: Papertrey Ink (Simply Chartreuse, Cream) | Twine: May Arts | Ribbon: Papertrey Ink (Aqua Mist) | Rub-ons: Melissa Frances | Tools: Papertrey Ink Medium Scalloped Border Die, Beautiful Blooms II #1 Die Collection, MFT Stamps Die-Namics Open Scalloped Border, We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper, sewing machine | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo)

Along with the birthday card I also sent her a gift certificate and some other goodies, and put it all in this gift card holder. For the gift card holder I used the largest size kraft envelope that is available in my store. I also used one of my sentiment tags.
