A Floral Wreath of Birthday Wishes

The fall is an amazing season of birthday celebrations in our family.  What is stunning is the amount of friends and family who enjoy the same birthday season!  What a perfect time to make a soft, pretty card for a gift.  This lovely went to a co-worker before Christmas and I'm just getting around to editing the photo and posting on theblog.  Here's the details:

  • Those flowers are Heartfelt's Arianna Blooms.  Stamped with black Archival Ink and die cut with the zero edge die.  Such an innovation!  I'm loving this stamp and die set a bunch.  The flowers are cut from the Authentic Grace paper collection I bought earlier this year.  All papers are from the coordinating backsides of patterned papers.  The centers of the flowers are gems adhered with my iRock tool, taken out of the tool shed for the first time in a while.

  • The greenery is cut from green cardstock from the stash using my go to Our Daily Bread Designs Fancy Foliage.  Still one of my best buys this year!
  • The sentiment was stamped in brown Archival Ink with a wood stamp onto cream cardstock.  
Simple, but a very effective result.  I'll admit to a bit of inspiration using this image from Pinterest.  Not a direct take, but definitely inspired by.  


Thank you so much for your kind words. Isn't it fun to encourage one another, even from a distance?
