Birthday Flower

Good morning, Friends! I love my guys when they let me sleep in! It felt SO good! I am feeling much better and especially since I got to sleep in! And now they are off at school and work and I can drink my coffee and blog in peace. Ahhh!! So today, since I am feeling better, I had better find some mojo and get back to work! I am really hoping to get a lot done today. Next week is spring break and I want to be able to not worry about all this other stuff - lol! 

Today's card was one that I copied from the Stampin' Success magazine. Actually, the focal point is really the only thing that's the same. I just thought it was so cute! I ran a piece of Very Vanilla through the Big Shot with the Woodgrain embossing folder and added a strip of Tea for Two designer paper with both ends flagged. This is then popped up onto a card base of Very Vanilla. Then I punched a scallop circle from So Saffron and curled the edges slightly. To the back of this I added some leaves of Lucky Limeade that I punched using the 1 3/8" circle punch. This is popped up onto the card. On a piece of Very Vanilla I stamped the sentiment from Made for You in Early Espresso and punched it out with the 1 3/8" circle punch. This is adhered to the center of the scallop circle. Then I added a small vintage faceted button with some linen thread tied through it. A sweet happy spring card! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
