Through you might like to see the card i made for my friend 50th birthday.Her favourite colour is purple and she is of to Las Vegas for a holiday after the party tonight  so this is where I got the idea for this card.
I am sitting in my hotel room relaxing while the boys are off decorating the venue for tonight not to sure what they have been doing will have to wait until to night but i have a feeling it will be lots of balloons and baby photos.
