Birthday Aunt Turns 92!

My husband's aunt, Joanie, turns 92 at the end of the month!  She is a delightfully, young 92-year old with a quick wit and a quick smile!  I decided to make her a card using a pink parchment cardstock that I had stamped at a "shoebox" crop almost a year ago.  I did not have a chance to make the card, but I love the butterfly stamp provided.  Unfortunately, it retired as far back as 2007!  At the crop, I had placed rhinestones on the butterfly as shown on the sample card, but that was as far as I got.  I can not remember what the rest of the card looked like so I decided to do my own thing and make a pink monochromtic card using embellishments from my stash.  I wanted to use the rose chiffon trim from my stash, which is so popular right now.  I incorporated a little verse inside to go with the sentiment on the front and dressed it up to match the front.  I hope my card brings one of Aunt Joanie's wonderful smiles her face when she receives it in the mail.

Recipe:  SU stamp: Reason to Smile (retired), SU cardstock: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink; Pink parchment cardstock, print from stash.  7/8" pink sheer scallop ribbon, 3/8" pink chiffon rosette trim, Colorbox Cat Eye: Chestnut Roan (distressing edges), Spellbinders Labels One (inside).
