Special Card For A Special Daughter

I finished my daughter's card.  It had to be special, as we're going to celebrate her "anniversary" tomorrow.  Not her wedding anniversary, but the anniversary of the day she came to us as a tiny baby, from Korea!  That was 26 years ago.  We celebrate her arrival date, August 30th, every year. 
Here's the card I made her:
I just love these little Penny Black critters.  I am entering this card in the following challenges:
BASIC GREY CHALLENGE .   Use fabric somewhere on your project.  I used a fabric ruffle around the image, which I made from a strip of fabric that I ran a stitch along and pulled to form ruffles, then attached with glue dots. 
PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE - The theme of this week's challenge is SUMMER LOVIN'.  I think these little critters blowing bubbles fits the bill.
PENNY BLACK AT ALLSORTS .  The challenge theme is GLITTER AND GLITZ.  I used glitter around the image, crystals, pearls, and if you enlarge the card you may see the glimmer on the bubbles.  This card is entered in their Design Team call.

Well, that's it for today.  I can't wait to give Faith her card.  We're looking forward to spending the day with her, Keeley, and Dan at the Elmwood Festival.  

Blessings and peace,
