Birthday Wishes

I've spent so much time the last couple of months making Christmas cards it's time I get my
birthday card stash back up to par.  When I saw the latest challenge at Freshly Made 
Sketches I decided to give it a try using some of my new stamps and dies.  I'm entering
this card in the Seize the Birthday challenge as well, where anything goes!

This is what I came up with…

using this sketch.

I started with the Sizzix "Corners, Ornate #2" embossing folder for the white panel. I die
cut the banners using the Sizzix "Banners 2" set and the Taylored Expressions "Label It"
set. Then I stamped the flower border using a stamp set called "Bugabee" from
Taylored Expressions and cut it out free hand. I die cut the yellow flowers on the border
with a coordinating die set and added some pearls.  The sentiment was stamped from a
Hot off the Press set called Birthday Greetings.  I think it turned out pretty well.
Thanks for taking a look!
