Beautiful Blooms

Happy Wednesday! First off I wanted to say thank you for all the wonderful birthday wishes and comments that were left in the last post, they really meant a lot to me. The bag is now up for sale in my Etsy shop if anyone is interested in buying it. The weather here has been great the last couple of days. We even hit a record of 82 yesterday! We are definitely trying to enjoy it while it lasts.
Last week my friend Carol who is part of the Papertrey Peeps group shared this card on her blog in honor of my birthday and I totally fell in love with it. That is where I got the inspiration to make this.

Mine is a bit different though. First off I changed the size to 41/4x51/2 so it is smaller. I also did not have the punch she used so I found a flower image and cut them out with my Cricut. The background piece is the new Hawaiian Shores color which I am also in love with. I embossed the HS piece with the Quickcuts diamond embossing folder. I pretty much followed the rest of last weeks Mojo Monday sketch 131 and finished it off with some satin hibiscus ribbon. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the PTI Birthday Basics set and the butterfly is from the Butterfly Dreams set This card is on it's way to a special friend who's birthday just happens to be the day after mine. I hope she likes it.
That's it for now. Friday is Emilia's birthday so I hope to be back then to share her special day with you. Until then I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
