Birthday card for a co-worker

One of my co-workers is having a "big" birthday this week but she asked that we really not draw attention to the age. We think she's going to be 60. We're going to do a breakfast for her on Friday and get her flowers (she's always bringing in flowers for others' birthdays). I volunteered to make a card and ran some designs past another co-worker for insight.

She picked my pink and brown card that I had made for someone else and thought it would be perfect.


I love pink and brown together, but wasn't sure how Donna felt about it. I know she likes purple and green, so I adapted the card a bit and came up with this:


It's a bit different but the basic style is the same. It's been decided that she will probably love it.

The flower is made with a couple of paper punches and I put the cut-outs together to form the flower.

I will be very glad if she does.

If she doesn't like it, send it to me. I love cards and Bruce refuses to buy them. boohoo. Seriously, it's beautiful and she is going to be thrilled with it. When someone takes the time to make something it's cherished.

A very sweet card--she'll appreciate being celebrated without being called "old" I bet!

That's a lovely card Teresa, and I must admit that I prefer the colours on the one you've made for Donna. You certainly are very talented. Wish I could do things like that!
