80th in white

Next week is the 80th birthday of one of our choir members. We have no practise as the choir director and her sister, the treasurer, are going to the wedding of their sister - who must be in her 70s, which is all rather sweet. So we're having Jean's birthday a week early, and I was asked to make the card from us all.

I thought it tied in rather nicely with Less Is More's classic challenge of "white on white". Now I'm rubbish at taking pictures of white, but I think you get the general idea. I've used my Cuttlebug's music embossing folder with Silhouette-cut numbers and punched butterflies which are also embossed. With hindsight I won't do that again, but I've just about got away with it. A few dots of Stickles Star Dust to give it that magical touch, and it's done. I'm hoping for a few oohs and aahs tomorrow. ;-)
