Happy birthday!


Today I have a birthday card inspired by Shari Carroll.  This was fun to put together with My Creative Time products.  I started with a white A2 card base, and then I used a die from Love to Learn to make little "cards," one with patterned paper from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found 2:  Rosy, and the other with two layers of white cardstock.  I tied some green hemp around the white layer and popped it up with dimensional adhesive.  All of the dots and the flower were made with Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies, but the little green circle was made with a die from Loyal Friends.  I made "happy" with a die from Boughs of Holly.  It has 3 layers to make it nice and thick.   "Birthday" is a stamp from Happy Thoughts."
