Celebrate in Style

In keeping with the yellow theme (sort of) this week, I have a birthday card today. The background cardstock is stamped with various inks and stamps by Close to my Heart and I think Fiskars. I have to fess up, I'm totally not sure about the stamps and ink because I made this background probably 2 or 3 years ago. At the time, I didn't like it so I put it in my "To be Continued" box and then recently as I was thumbing through the box of  unfinished (or unliked) cards I came across it. I thought to myself I have the perfect color flowers and what nots to go with this card and Wah-La the card has been given a new life. Glad I got that off my chest - Lol.

The darker yellow flower is from the online store Stamping Scrapping (Another Cindy from the Grand Rapids, MI area- You may know her because she released a line of Spellbinders dies. Her last name starts with an E. See the link and visit her store. She has a clearance section and deals of the week. I'm totally going shopping when I finish this post.) 
*Wow I'm really babbling today*

The lighter colored flower is by Prima and the center is by Forever in Time. Side note-I saw these centers made into earrings at the Farmers Market today. Good idea.

The label die cut is by Spellbinders with DCWV patterned paper and sentiment stamp by Hero Arts (Love them!) with ink by Close to my Heart. The different cardstocks on my card are by Recollections and the brads and ribbon are from my stash.

Thanks for putting up with me today and come back
