Norma's birthday card

Today's card has been made since Mar 15th. I didn't post this card is because it's a birthday card I made for my blogger friend, Norma and I don't want her to see it before she gets it. Now that she received it, so it's time for me to post it. (HAPPY BIRTHDAY NORMA).

Norma is a very sweet lady that I know through the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group. I also wanted to thank her for all her inspiration from her wonderful creations and her thoughtfulness too.

This card is made with the "Violin Tilda" from Magnolia-licious. I got this stamp for free with purchase over $60.00 for the month of March. I like the elegant look of this image. I found the SU music clef stamp to add as my background. I dug all the DP drawers and found this music sheet 8 1/2 x 11 paper which I didn't even know I had. However I only have 1 sheet, so I had to struggle a little to make sure I had enough for this card.


here is a closer view on the image


Here is a closer shot on her wings that I painted using the pearl Smooch


Side view of this card



I found a big pastel purple flower for the inside of this card and a "March" rub on since this is a "March" birthday card.
