Birthday Wishes

Good morning! Happy Saturday!! My stash of birthdy cards is pretty low, and I am in need of several birthday cards (5 within a matter of 5 days!)... This card is for a dear sweet friend of mine who celebrates her birthday next week. I used Amber's final Viva La Verve sketch for January, VLVJanWeek4. I chose the trio of flowers as my inspiration photo.

I stamped the large flower from Verve's Love's Flower onto my Island Mist panel, sprinkled on some clear embossing powder and heat embossed them. The sentiment is from Wishing You. I rounded the corners to soften the edges of the card a bit and finished with some pearls, ribbon and stitching.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
