birthday card

A penpal of mine has her birthday next Monday, so I made a birthday card for her. We've know each other for over 12 years at least (I really have to look up the first letters we ever wrote). Yes, that's right. We started writing each other old school letters. That was before the e-mail era. ;)
I'm really gratefull that we still e-mail each other every now and then. And I hope that we will stay penpals for a very long time.
On this card I used many products: paper, flowers, wooden embellishments, a brad, pearls, glossy accents, punches, ink, pen, perfect pearls mist. I love how they all come together in the pattern created by the circles. One nice detail is that the flower in the upper centre is a flower that I got from my penpal last birthday. So nice!
I still have some more cards to make. And I'm also trying to sew a baby bib. But, because I have never really sewn something, it is actually a little hard for me. I'll show you the result as soon as a finished a bib that is actually worth showing. ;)
Have a good week!
