Birthday Wishes



I made another birthday card for my stash using a Gina Maria Oval Starburst die along with some vanilla, black, and orchid cardstock. I used a SU! scalloped top punch to make the tag, and added a SNSS sentiment. The flowers were done with a SU! mini punch and the centers were made with a paper punch. I added a snippet of vanilla ribbon along with some black twine for the finishing touch.

I'm entering this at the Tuesday Throwdown #303 which is to use your favorite embellishment. I don't have one favorite in particular, but I use tags, flowers, ribbon, and twine often - so I think I've got it covered :)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're staying cool wherever you are.

Love the die and those colors you used for this Carol. I don't think we can ever have too many birthday cards and this one will be great to add to the stash. Love the tiny little flowers too.
