Milestone Birthday's

My card this week is quite a simple design and was an idea given to me by a friend on a recent crafty day a her place. I intend to give it to a work colleague for her 40th next month. It's an 8x8 card base of pearlescent card. The borders and die's are a Spellbinders matching set all cut in lilac pearlescent card. The embossed piece is from Couture Creations called Tied Together. This is layered onto silver mirror card. A large ivory taffeta bow to finish. Thanks for the idea Jan.
