A Birthday Card for an Old Friend....

Hello Friends! I made this card a few days ago following the sketch challenge at Truly Scrumptious .. but I missed the deadline to post it on their blog. It does, however fit into the PaperTake Weekly challenge which is "Cut it Out" (use punched shapes / die cuts) and it also fits with the "anything goes" challenge  at For Fun Challenges that I will post it on.
I really enjoy making cards for a specific person. This one is for my friend, Elli who I met when we were both in 8th grade, our birthdays are only 8 days apart, so of course she will be getting a special card from me. She teaches English in Paris, so I am afraid it will be a little late, but I think she will appreciate it all the same.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I would love to hear what you think!
