Crafting by Designs Guest Design Card

You're So Special 
 is the new challenge theme at Crafting by Designs
 Because I was a Spotlight Winner on their challenge a few weeks ago, I was asked to join their Design Team in creating an inspiration project for this new challenge.  

My godmother celebrated her 90th birthday 2 days ago.
She has always been a very, very special person to me.
This card was made for her.

This photo shows the details of the card: a 5 layer banner, 2 layers are punched on each side, the top layer is a cream striped satin ribbon;  a light blue circle die cut with a dark blue circle behind it to show off the details;
On the back panel: a floral leaf die cut in green; a butterfly die cut divided into 2 pieces with a few pearls; glossy cream numbers cut on the cricut and then embossed with tiny hearts; dark blue enamel dots; light blue glitter dots.
On the pop out frame:  the sentiment (a freebie stamp from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine) stamped in versa mark and heat embossed in pearl white and a pearl to dot the "i";  a 2 layer cricut cut flower with a dark blue punched flower and pearl in the center.
On the front panel: 2 more flowers and a bow.
The papers I used are from a retired CTMH paper pack called Miracle.

Please don't forget to create something for Someone Special in your life and submit it to the Crafting by Designs challenge.

This card is being submitted to the following challenges:
