Happy Charmed Birthday

 This is the outside of the card
This is the tag you can pull out from the front of the card.
The inside of the card is blank.

I had this beautiful Designer Paper and knew I just had to make a special card from it. The card-stock used is a navy blue, then I cut the DP on a diagonal. I found a piece of DP in my wonderful "stash," that worked as a tag. The tiny clear pearls were applied to the center of the flowers. The ribbon, also from my "stash," was used and paired with a charm. (The charm was actually a pierced earring! I just cut off the back...clever, right? I am pleased with this card. 
You never know what you can design using what you have on hand. ( I am really trying to downsize my supplies! Just have to stay away from Michael's...
