birthday wishes

Wow, I can't believe how long it's been since I last posted anything. Now that the weather is nice, I'm trying to get things done around the outside of the house. I don't spend as much time in my craft room in the summer, unless it's raining. I do have a card to share with you tonight. I just love the accordian flower that Kelly Lunceford created, so I decided to create one for this card.

The paper I used to create the flower is by My Mind's Eye and the button I had in my stash. I just picked up some embossing folders by Cuttlebug and used one here on some ocean tides cardstock. I just took my fresh snow ink pad and ran it across the embossing to make it stand out a bit. I stamped Background Basics Text Style on some kraft cardstock and adhered it to a vintage cream card base. The sentiment is from Mega Mixed Messages stamped with Versa Magic Sahara Sand, which I thought matched the kraft cardstock very well.

Thanks for stopping by!
