Happy 90th Birthday!

It is May 14th & we woke up to snow this morning.....I don't think spring is ever going to arrive here in Manitoba!  These flowers may be the only ones I can enjoy for a long time to come if the ground doesn't thaw soon. The poor orioles have arrived & are wondering what the heck is going on!

Now, about my card; I made this for a very special lady who is celebrating her 90th birthday this weekend. There is a big party for Olive which is going to be OUTSIDE in a tent....sure hope the temperatures sky rocket by then....could be very nippy if they don't! This is my first pop up box card & I loved making it. There will definitely be more. The base of the card is Bazzill CS decorated with the beautiful My Mind's Eye "Miss Caroline Collection". The large flowers are Spellbinder die cuts using DP by Prima "Songbird" & Provo "French Country Collection", CS is Prism. The small flowers are punches using the same papers. The little fence &small flower vines are Memory Box; leaves & large flower stems are Spellbinders; butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch which I "stickled" & the pearls are Recollections. I sure hope Olive likes it!
