Vintage Birthday for a Special Friend

Happy Friday!! It's also the day after Thanksgiving here, and in the spirit of giving thanks, I wanted to share a birthday card I made for a wonderful friend whom I'm very thankful for, Lisa Hjulberg. She's celebrating a very *special* birthday this weekend (although I won't tell HOW special *wink*).

For her card, I used a newly released set, "Merci Bouqet" from Layers of Color, along with these coffee pearls from McMahon Five Designs. The paper I'm not sure where I got? I stamped the image on watercolor paper with Stazon and colored with colored pencils. I also added some touches of clear sparkly gellyroll pen for pretty highlighting.

And I made another one of these Victorian Rose collector ornaments and sent to Lisa for her birthday. She's just recieved it so I am not spoiling the surprise! LOL.

**Note: I did not come up with the design for the ornament, I buy these in kits that come with the satin ball and a package of beads, pins and silk roses and I follow the instructions and diagrams to put it all together.

Wishing you a very Happy Birthday Lisa!!

Hope you have a wonderful birthday weekend!!
