Flowers, Flowers, Flowers!

One of my co-workers mentioned it was her birthday 'tomorrow', and I just happened to have the embossed cloud background waiting for a card!  I saw a card like this, and made many changes to come up with this design.  I punched out the bird from vellum, the Happy Birthday is stamped on a tag, and I used DSP from Valentine's Day as the flower backgrounds with pink flowers in front for dimension.

Lots of people from work stopped by to sign it, and Ms. Clarice loved the card!
I saw this card originally as a "Thinking of You" card.  Since I already had the stamp set out and available, I used the sentiment and small butterfly.  The large butterfly image is punched from vellum and inked in pink. Before mounting the center oval, I made cuts in the pink scallop oval, inked them and separated them a little.  TIP:  Use sharpie on the rhinestones to give the flower centers some color.  This also works on the pearls.

Please leave a comment. Thanks so much!
