A birthday card for a musical friend

Tonight I just have a quick share. 
A short while ago I made this birthday card for a friend who was going to celebrate her fiftieth birthday.

I used bling cardstock as a card base. I added a paper strip that I had punched with my Martha Stewart lace punch. I also added a piece of October Afternoon paper with musical notes on it as my friend plays in a symphony orchestra. As a kind of background for my floral embellishments I used two journaling spots. The light blue one I drew and cut out by hand and the white one is a Spellbinders shape.
In the middle there are some mulberry flowers, a bling butterfly, and the letter stickers are by October Afternoon, too.

I think it is nice to be able to do this kind of a fast project now and then, and I find it so much more enjoyable to give away a hand made card when I have the choice.
I hope you like it!!

As always, thank you so much for dropping by.
Hope you are enjoying your week end!
Hugs to you!
