Cute Card Thursday Challenge 112 - Someone Special Card with PTI Anniversary Set

I need several thank you cards for several special people in my life, so I've been playing with Papertrey Ink's 2009 Anniversary set! In my seemingly never-ending struggle to create lately, I thought I'd follow the lead of one of those very special friends, Gwen, and add this card to the Cute Card Thursday challenge. This set provides many versatile options for layering and sentiment choices. I used the largest Spellbinders' Labels 3 die to frame the main swirly "frame" image, buttons on the focal sunflower image and lots of Tea Dye duo distressing. As a finishing touch, I used Copic markers and colorless blender to color my seam binding & pearl. I then pinched, wadded and smushed it into aged loveliness -- LOL! I'm sooo happy with the end result!
