Happy Birthday Connie!  This card is for YOU! 

I used my brand new Stampin Up Perfect Banner Framelits dies with matching stamps from Perfect Pennants and Banner Greetings sets.  I also used my new SU papers and inks, Raspberry Ripple and Primrose Petal.  I threw in some CM patterned paper and some hand made paper from India.  I finished it off with some silver pearls and a segment of Mardi Gras beads that I found in my metallic embellishment container!  I have no idea where they came from (a kit ?) but they were the perfect addition to this pretty pink card for Connie!
Since I only had one strand of beads, the second card is with Tim Holtz silver tinsel.  I have used 3 banners, 2 stamped images and 1 strand of beads/bling!

I hope you have a wonderful birthday weekend Connie!
