80th Birthday Card

Good morning everyone I hope that you are all well and have survived all of this weekends nonstop rain I spent a lot of the weekend crafting as they have been very dark miserable days here.
Anyway enough of the weather and onto my card. This is a commission I was asked to make for a friend I have made it in a design I have used before as she saw that card, liked it and asked for similar so here it is. I used a lilac and white colour scheme this time. Those of you who remember it will remember my last one was pink and white.

I am sitting here wondering where I have seen that embossing folder, then I read you got yours with your ebosser, so did I, but never used I will. BEAUTIFUL set Carole, your cards are just always so elegant and must take a lot of caring time in the making... I need to do that too. xx
