Wishing you...

Hope you're having a great weekend!





I'm playing along with this month's PTI blog hop (interactive cards) as well as the week's Make It Monday (glittered buttons). Fun!

Photobucket

I stamped a background using the new Pretty Peonies set--stamped the outline and inside of the larger flower as well as the smaller outline, and colored a bit with Copics. The beautiful frame is also from that set, which I cut out by hand.

Here is a close up of the glittered buttons! The sentiment is from Movers & Shakers: Sentiments. Under the zipper it reads "a birthday as special as you are".

Thanks for coming by!
Melissa
