Simple Birthday Card

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and looking forward to your weekend.  I am so looking forward to my weekend.  I have had a big decision to make at work this week which has not been easy.  Can't say too much at the moment but changes are coming.  
Our youngest daughter had some fantastic news this week.  She has been accepted into university to train to be a midwife.  She has wanted to do this for a few years now and she was so excited to be accepted.  We are so proud of her and know that she will a great midwife.

Anyway, enough waffle and onto tonight's card share.  I have been having another play with my Brother Scan and Cut using some free cutting files from Birds Cards.  


The background and the Birthday Wishes in the centre were cut from pink card using my Brother Scan and Cut.  I mounted the birthday wishes onto some purple card after threading some ribbon through the slots at top and bottom.  A lace bow and some pearls in the corners of the card were the only embellishments needed.  Such a quick and easy card to do but very effective.  Think I will be making a few of those for my card stock box.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I love reading all your comments.
