Floral Birthday Wishes

I had a little time yesterday to just make a card with no special "ingredients."  It felt good:)

I started with a new Fiskars stamp I bought at JoAnn's last week - with a 50% off coupon, of course!  I inked it up with Cameo Coral ink (from Stampin' Up!) and then used an Old Olive marker to color over the leaves and stems.  I stamped it several times to make my own patterned paper.  I matted with Old Olive cardstock.  I punched the little butterfly with a Martha Stewart punch out of Cameo Coral.  I colored the centers of the larger flowers with a Summer Sun marker, added Star Dust Stickles to the centers of the larger flowers, tiny brown pearls to the centers of the smaller flowers, and a tiny white pearl to the butterfly.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Round and Round set and is stamped in Old Olive ink.

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

Dear Lynette,
Such a pretty, pretty, pretty floral birthday card! I love the Cameo Coral and Old Olive colors. Anyone would be tickled to receive such a pretty card.

Hugs, Suzie
