I just love Audrey Hepburn, so when I saw this cut file by Daniela Moscone at the Silhouette store, I just knew I had to create something with it.

I found this quote by Audrey Hepburn:

"The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years"

It inspired me to create a birthday card.

I also added the birthday speech bubbles which are a "print and cut" file which you can purchase here.

I typed and added the quote from my Print Shop program.
