Happy Birthday card

I made a birthday card ATC to send with my monthly swap ladies. I was amazed at the cards I received when it was my birthday month and want to be sure send love back to others. 

The pattern paper is by Recollections, the jute is by Tim Holtz and the happy birthday stamp are by Stampendous. The flower is a download from the Internet that you cut out and then roll into this dimensional flower. I stamped it first with flower stamps by SEI and inked the edges with distress ink before I rolled it up into the flower you see. It takes a little (a ton) of practice to get it to look good but if you apply Stickles to the edges to make it sparkle you can cover up imperfections. Add a brown brad in the center


Thanks for looking.
