Happy Birthday, Joyce!

This is for a friend from my Yahoo! group.  Happy Birthday tomorrow, Joyce!  (She is in California now, and I don't honestly think she will be checking my blog.)

I started by punching the flowers on a scrap of white, just to test a new punch.  I liked it, so I added the scoring and stamped the sentiment (from Papertrey Ink)  Then I matted it on Perfect Plum cardstock from Stampin' Up! and added the pearl centers, and I also mounted it on Dimensionals.  The background was made with a stamp from Archivers (the leaves) stamped in Tim Holtz Peeled Paint ink and a "dot" stamp from a PTI set in Perfect Plum.  The bottom piece is mounted on Old Olive.

On a personal note, we found out yesterday that our son and daughter-in-law will be having a boy!  They are due in December.  How exciting!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

What a cute card! Such a fun thing that you started off tesing a punch and then created a card from it. :) You've given me an idea for my little leaves from Archivers. And congrats on a future grandson!

I haven't had time to leave comments lately, but I look at your blog every day! You gals that have a card to share every single day amaze me... wish I could do it. This is a great one. I love all the elements... the stamped background as well as the punched layer. Thanks for the inspiration!!!
