An Aster for Your Birthday

Another co-worker birthday card to share with you today.  I needed something simple and sweet. So I turned to my puppy dog (10 1/2 years old!) for inspiration.

I picked up some asters at Trader Joe's, stuffed them into a vase and my dog, Abby, always demands to smell the flowers.  Which reminded me of my Heartfelt Creations Delicate Aster dies.

Using an online color inspiration, I went to the stash and found the grey patterned paper and the neon green scraps.  I swear the green isn't quite so neon in real life and the Aster really shines.  Simple, but effective to let someone at work know I thought of them on their birthday.

ETA:  I'm linking up to Ruby's Rainbow challenge #111 Diecuts or Punches and CropStop's Linky Party #7 and a Give-Away
