50 and Fab!

It's my sister-in-law Sue's 50th birthday this Friday. I really hate all that "Over the Hill" stuff and black balloons they sell to supposedly commemorate someone's 50th birthday.  Here's the card I created for her:

 

Not one bit of stamping!  I used Cricut Summer in Paris cart to die cut the silhouette female and Storybook cart for the letters.  I found the little K & Co purse embellie at Big Lots awhile ago. 
Other Materials Used: Papertrey ink cs, Stampin' Up scalloped border punch, Source of pp unknown

My sister-in-law has raised two of the most delightful young ladies - Kelly will be a senior at Clemson University this Fall and Katie will be a senior in high school.  She opens her southern home to her mother for 4 months out of the year so my mother-in-law doesn't have to endure the harsh upstate NY winters.  She cheerfully altered her family's eating and exercise habits when her husband's doctor discovered some medical issues.  And during a recent visit she gave me a gift certificate she'd won as it could be used at their local stamping store.  Fabulous indeed!

Hi Robin, love your card and your sister in law will love it, too. The design and the colors are perfect. I need to take out my cricut and make a few non-stamped cards, also. Take care and have a wonderful weekend.
