Happy Birthday

 Hello friends.  I am sharing a birthday card I made for my step-daughter who lives in Texas.

I used Spellbinders Club Blooms for the pretty flowers and leaves.  The flowers are cut from SU Seaside Spray.  I blended a darker blue ink in the centers, shaped the petals and then layered them. The yellow centers are die cut with a lt. yellow from my stash.  I also cut 3 of the small blooms from white and added the yellow centers. The leaves are cut from a Recollections green pack.  The sentiment is from an older SU set Rose Wonder, as is the die used to cut it.  I mounted the sentiments and arranged the flowers on a Sahara Sand panel embossed with SSS Spun Glass EF.  I added a thin black mat and mounted it to the white card base.

I will link to the following challenges:
