Birthday Wishes

Good morning!  Today's card is a birthday card for a dear friend of mine from highschool.  We live many, many miles apart, but stay connected by sending cards and chatting on Facebook.   I found a couple of challenges to help me with my mojo and I think I nailed it!    I am participating in my first challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  I took a little bit of liberty with the sketch, but I think it works.  

The second challenge that I'm entering the card in is for Hand Stamped Sentiments.  Their challenge this week is a color challenge using Blushing Bride, Real Red, Pool Party, and Pear Pizzazz.  

Here is my creation: 

Card Ingredients:

CS:  Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, Real Red, Pool Party, Shimmery White
Ink:  Pool Party, Blushing Bride (marker)
Stamp Set:  Swirls and Curls Verses
Accessories:  Lattice Embossing Folder, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Subtle Designer Button, White Embroidery Floss, Crystal Effects, Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive

If you have any questions about my card, please email me at  Thanks for stopping by today!!!
