Stampin B's Birthday WIshes

I just finished this card yesterday and since today's StampinB's challenge #69 is to make a birthday card, I decided to enter it into that challenge. My husband's sister is turning 60 next month, so this card is going to her. I was going for a soft look and I think I achieved it with this card. I think the Fifth Avenue Florals stamp by SU! is my favorite go-to set for feminine cards because I love the flower images. I hope she'll like this card as much as I enjoyed making it for her.
Wishing you all a wonderful Thursday!

Carol

Carol, this is fabulous! Your embossing folder gives so much texture and those crimped leaves look great. I love every detail.
So glad you joined the Stampin B again this week. We enjoy seeing your cards.

WOW! Those flowers are GORGEOUS, and I love the texture of the leaves and the background (still need that embossing folder lol!) Btw, in answer to your question, no, I still haven't gotten to the stamp store, but I'm working on it ;)
