Classy and Fabulous Birthday!

It's Friday again and time for another Friends with Flair!  You can find some fabulous creations by gals who love inking up their Unity Stamps here every Friday!
This past weekend we celebrated my hubby's grandma's 93rd birthday!  This is the card I made for her.  I just know that back in the day she was a fashionista and thought this card was perfect for her.  I LOOOOVE this sentiment (that's the main reason I bought this set plus it was on sale ;)).  For the inside of the card I wrote Happy Birthday to a woman who is both!

I don't love the way this turned out but I was in a time crunch (finished it about an hour before her party).  I knew I wanted to use this stamp and sentiment but was having a hard time finding papers to match the classy and fabulous feel that I wanted the card to have.  Don't you just hate it when you know you have the perfect papers for a project but can't seem to find them!?!  Oh well, she loved it so that's really all that matters right? 
The pretty frame is cut with my Cricut Elegant Edges cartridge out of Echo Park paper at 4 1/2".  The striped PP is old Bobunny.  I was looking for a paper with pretty and elegant swirls to it but couldn't find the one I had in mind.  I also think the pearls on here clash with the polka-dot frame but it needed some bling and I was just really rushed to finish it.  Hate it when I don't plan ahead for special cards.
Happy Friday everyone, wishing you all a fabulous weekend!!!
