Pleated Skirt Birthday

Hello and welcome. I hope you're having a nice weekend with some nice spring weather. It's a perfect day here in Las Vegas.

Todays card is for one of my s-i-l's. I usually make her one with a crazy old lady image but decided to change it up a bit this year. However, the sentiment inside doesn't quite match the front..."When I get old, I'm not going to sit around knitting. I'm going to be clicking my Life Alert button to see how many hot firefighters show up.!" 
DP is Perfect Artistic Designer Series Paper from Stampin Up; large daisy is from the Silhouette; small daisies are a Stampin Up punch. Sentiment is from a clear stamp set that I've had for a long time but there's no name on it. Porcelain dots were colored with a Copic marker. I cut a 1/2 " border to put across the top but it doesn't show up very well in the photo. 

Thanks for stopping by, please come back soon. Comments are greatly appreciated. Have a great day.

Take Care!
