Happy 80th Birthday!

Happy Monday!  I am popping in here with a card to share.  Today is my mom's birthday!  My mom is 80 years young today!   I needed a card for her.  I figure to reach such an important milestone that it should be proudly displayed.  

I am playing along with Papertrey Inks Create Along With Us Challenge.   I really love this card from Stephanie Gold.

I love the layout and the different elements on Stephanie's card.  I chose to follow the same layout and look varying the colors and stamps as needed.   The traditional colors for 80th Birthdays are gold and black.  I started with  harvest gold chicken scratch gingham pattern paper for the background.  

I used a paper heart doily from a pack from my stash.  I layered a gold foiled Mix and Mat Pretty Bracket Frames die.  I die cut the By the Numbers in black and used foam tape to pop them up. 

  I used one of the dies from Fabulous Frames for the sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment from the Friendly Flowers stamp set in versamark.  I tied true black twine to the card and tag.  I finished my card with a few clear sequins.

Here is a picture of my beautiful mom!

Happy 80th Birthday, Mom!
