Birthday Wishes

I has a good stamping day yesterday - I love it when the creative ideas are just flowing. StampTV had their release party last week and that included a couple of challenges. I LOVE winning new stamps (who doesn't) and wanted to take advantage of it, especially when my order arrived yesterday in the mail. Nothing like new rubber in the hands to create with. 
This card is also for the JUGS sketch challenge - neat sketch isn't it? 

This was not a difficult card to make - it was fun! I used a Cuttlebug folder for the cranberry panel. I stamped the fence image twice - then used both sides for the 2 circles. The flowers in the center were colored with Copics and I used a few black fibers cut up finely for the centers of the flowers. The dots on the side were punched out of the DP. Cool idea huh? 

Thanks for stopping by and your comments are always treasured!
God Bless,
