I'm still on a project kick, and this time I am using a tutorial I got from Butternut Sage Designs (it is available for purchase on her blog).  It was another birthday card for my mom's 80th birthday celebration.  It's a pull tab card, and this photo shows it in the "closed" position.  Mom loves pink and black so that became my colour scheme.  Once again, I used Be Blessed, along with the Petal Point and Sprightly Springs Dies to create the flower arrangement.

Here's the card in the "open" position with the sentiment  pulled out.  I added a row of bling for a little sparkle and pizazz :)   What can I say, it's a high end flower pot to celebrate mom's 80th LOL!
