Birthday Wishes

Today's card is a longer rectangle then I usually do but it must have been OK because my Mom snatched it up when she came over for birthday cards. I have a bunch of odd shaped envelopes that need to be used so you may see more of these odd sized cards-well odd for me. I usually do the standard size cards that Michael's sells which is 4x5.5. They run them on sale twice a year for 3 packs of 25 for $5. I load up when they run that special.

Anyway, The background stamp is by Deep Red Stamps and can be found HERE. I used Stampin Up ink to stamp the stamp and then used Ranger Distress inks on the edges. I applied three different colors to get this look. I sprayed that whole piece with water and Perfect Pearls and let it dry.

I adhered the background piece to Provo Craft cream colored cardstock and then to the card base which is Bazzill. The flowers are by Oriental trading Co, Making Memories and Petaloo. The brads are by Close to my Heart and the center of the white flower is by Forever in Time. The brown ribbon is by Stampin Up and the polka dot ribbon is by American Crafts. Last but not least the word stickers are by Momenta.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my card.
