ANOTHER HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

This card is another birthday card that I made from items in my Spring Craft Kit. I've also been going back and looking at old SCS Sketch Challenges and this layout is #55. I really like looking through the older sketches.

The fun thing I did on this card is that the flower in the lower right is actually placed on the inside or the card and shows through a hole punched in the front. I also sponged Certainly Celery around the puched hole so it would stand out more.

The stamped flowers are colored with my copics. and to give them a little pizazz I used brads for the flower centers and some yellow stickles above the tulips for some sparkle. The green card stock the flowers are stamped on is layered on some burgundy mulberry paper I found laying around when I organized my paper scraps. Isn't it amazing what you can find when you clean up piles that are lying around. I didn't even know I had any colored mulberry paper!

My background was stamped in Certainly Celery with my Pattern background stamp.

So now I just need to wait for another birthday to crop up. I think it is my DS#2.

This one has so many cute details, Suzanne. And I love your sympathy card - so elegant and beautiful.

Thanks for the offer of a temporary home. It sure would be nice to come and stamp with you awhile! But alas, it is not to be this time! LoL!
