Happy Birthday

Hope you're having a great weekend!

I made this card a few night sgo...it turned out so different than I had orginially envisioned! I wanted to use the flowers from the Daydreamer set (PTI) and stamp them in these colors to have them match with the pretty Emma's Shoppe paper (Crate Paper), but in the end the focal image was too busy for me to also use the paper.

The focal image was cut with a Label 18 die (Nestabilities). The background is stamped using the polka dot background from WMS's Off-Beat Backgrounds. The sentiment is from WMS's Say it with Style.

Thanks for looking!

Wow, this is so gorgeous! It looks like flowers in a windowsill. I love the way you layered them. You have me rethinking this stamp set now!
