Happy Birthday, Grandma

I am moving right along in making cards for a purpose and actually getting them sent this year!  Today's card is for my grandma, whose birthday is next week. While I have not mailed it yet, I have kept it on my work table so I am sure to do so at the beginning of the week!  It is also their anniversary, so I will have to work on that one next.  I used the challenges at retrosketches, Stampin' Royalty and The Friday Mashup! for inspiration.
The challenge at Stampin' Royalty is birthdays and the challenge at The Friday Mashup! is to combine twine and birthdays.  Perfect!
I just love this stamp set and thought it would be perfect for a card for Grandma. I chose light delicate colors to make it look soft. The middle panel is scored with the Diagonal Simply Scored Plate and then I put a dot of Silver Dazzling Details at each intersection.  There is also Silver Dazzling Details in the flower centers. It's almost impossible to tell from the photo, but I rolled the banner around a pen to give it hills and valleys for a little more interest.
