Birthday card for my sister-in-law

My husbands big sister, and my sister-in-law, had her 50th birthday this week. Yesterday she celebrated it surrounded by her entire family. I got the assignment of making her a card, and here's the result :)

I need to start taking my pictures in daylight... the colours never turn out the way they really are. This one really is soft pink and beige :p

And isn't my new corner die from Whimsy perfect? Looks a bit like the corner die from Quickutz (the one they stopped making before I knew I wanted it...).

And I've made my first pin! Bought a couple jars of pearls and some pins at Panduro, and made it myself. I'll be back to buy more pearls, I just needed to see if I liked it. And I did ;)

6" x 6"
Cardstock: nature and beige
DPs from Magnolia
Memento - rich cocoa
Whiff of Joy, Kort og Godt, Bildmålarna
Magnolia dies (3 different butterfly-dies, 2 different flowerdies), whimsy corner-dies, lace, cheesecloth, doilies from Panduro, heart-cutouts from Kort & godt, MS punch, charm, homemade pin, swirl-die from Cheery Lynn, glimmermist - pearl and vintage pink, pearls (white and pink). All edges are sewed.

* I love promarkers - anything goes
* Delightful challenges - someone special
* The secret crafter saturday challenge - doilies
* Deep Ocean Challenge blog - butterflies
* Anonyme Scrappere - minst 3 dies
