One of my good friends recently had a special birthday,
so the girls took her out to dinner to help celebrate this happy event.
Of course, a card was in order ......
but in this instance, it was a book card.
It did take a little while to make ....
and I followed the rule of "measure twice - cut once"
[actually, I think I may have measured more than twice, but it worked!]
The birthday sentiment fits perfectly within the frame.
Of course, there needs to be somewhere to write a personal message.
As this card was obviously not going to fit in an envelope,
I made a box from pink card and tied it with a pretty ribbon.
As it turned out, the gift (which another girl organised) was tucked into a
co-ordinating little bag of similar colours - perfect!
We all enjoyed a celebratory dinner together at a very nice french restaurant.
