Happy Birthday


It's PTI's April Blog Hop and here's the inspiration photo:


And my card:

Photobucket

I stamped the background using Damask Designs onto Vintage Cream cardstock. The flowers and leaves are from Rosie Posie, some cut by hand, some using the dies. The sentiment is found in Enjoy the Ride. I stamped a lined background onto the piece of Spring Rain cardstock using the little frame from Luck of the Irish.

Thanks for taking a look!
Melissa

Ooh and Aah, Melissa! This is so very pretty. The damask style background lays a perfect foundation for those gorgeous flowers. The blue striped band is also a great way to anchor the design. Love it!
