This card was made for a special friend of mine that celebrated her 40th birthday earlier this summer.
I created the background paper using the flower stamps form the Number of Years stamp set, but you could always use your favourite DSP instead.
My inspiration for this card came from a German demonstrator Nadine Weiner. I think, if you read her blog entry, she got her inspiration from someone else, but as I haven't studied German since I left school, I cant be too sure exactly what she wrote!
The addition of the corner rounder just gives the card a softer look.
The last picture is just a reminder not to forget to co-ordinate your envelope - it really does give it a professional finish!
