Happy Birthday!

Happy Monday morning friends! I hope you had a great weekend! We sure did...but my daughter is still sick with a fever...thank goodness for Ibuprofen and Tylenol! I'm hoping to get her into the dr. today...she just has a fever and nothing else...I hope!

I made this card a few weeks ago and wanted to share it before it goes it's merry way! It was a fun one to create. I've been enjoying the fun of making my own flowers...die cuts and punches are such great tools! Anyway, onto the jist!
I started my card with some whisper white cardstock. I mounted a piece of pumpkin pie and then a piece of pink passion cardstock onto the card. I ran my pink passion piece through the Big Shot with my swiss dots embossing folder before attaching it to my card. Next I took a strip of black cardstock and it took a turn through my large scallop and was then attached to my card. I stamped my sentiment, which is from PTI's Papertrey stamp set..the very 1st set released! I stamped each word seperately...with black palette ink. I tied some ribbon, from SEI around the seam and then moved onto my flowers.

For my flowers, I had an old book that I tore a page out of and used with my Blossom Nestabilities dies! My daughter had a hard time seeing me tear a page out of a book, I assured here, she isn't allowed to tear pages out of books! I nested the blossoms and then added a little center detail, from heidi swapp.

I hope that you all have a wonderful Monday! I'm hoping today proves to help my daughter feel better...no more fever!! Thanks so much for stopping by!! Make it a great one!

I hope your daughter feels better!!! It's terrible when the kiddos are sick!! Jovie got something last week and had a fever for a day and a half. Glad it was nothing more though!

Cute card! Love the flowers. I haven't made my own flowers in ages!!!
