Happy Birthday

The card stock I used here is such a pretty and delicate shade of green and I really don't think my photos do it justice at all. It is Centura Pearl card which I 'found' at the bottom of a drawer. I decided to stick with the one colour as it's so pretty and it also matched really well with the LOTV sweet pea image from the Wild Flowers Art Pad.

First I embossed the Centura with my eBosser Regency folder and matted and layered the topper with Spellbinders Labels 8. I used a LOTV Sentiment mounted onto Nestie plain and scalloped circles. At the RH side is the Memory Box Butterfly Vine and the butterflies are from Cheery Lynn - Mini Things with Wings. Ribbon and gems from stash.

Card size is 8x8 inches

A double bow plus a Dazzler from Creative Expressions
