A birthday card

I'm popping it today to post a card that I made this afternoon.

I was inspired by Laurie Willison's card this morning for the Muse Challenge #7, so chose a craft background and stamped on it using PTI Fresh Snow ink and my new PTI Cutting Garden stamps set. I diecut some rustic white cardstock, using my PTI Edger's #3 die. I stamped the large flower from Cutting Garden, using both melon berry and berry sorbet ink, for this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: two-toned stamped flowers.


The sentiment is also from Cutting Garden.

Thanks for looking!
