Happy Birthday, Crafty Girl

Hope you are having a great weekend!

I made a card recently using the Embellish magazine's newest color challenge. Very spring!



The background is stamped with Background Basics: Tin Type and the spools of ribbon and the sentiment come from Studio Style. I thought I needed to add something under the sentiment, so I chose a beautiful little Prima flower, but I'm not sure it was just the right thing...



Thanks for coming by!
Melissa

Melissa, this is a great card and I think that little flower under the sentiment is perfect. It's almost reminds me of one of those icing flowers on a birthday cake. Very cute! :)
