Skylark Squares Birthday Card

Another Skylark birthday card... For this one, I brought out some pretty ancient embellishments... ones that go back at least 4 or 5 years. The stick pins were coloured on the ends as they come with white tops. I just used Sharpie markers to colour the ends to co-ordinate with the card. The turquoise gems are from the original Base and Bling line put out by Close To My Heart several years ago - there were multiple colours available but I loved the turquoise ones and stocked up on them! The white flower is from the Brushed accessory collection - that is a paper pack that I still have because it is just so gorgeous! 

So, here is the final card - I hope my friend likes it as much as I had fun making it for her!
