Never enough Birthday cards . . .

Happy Saturday friends . . .

It's a snowy, cold weekend so now that a bit of house work is done, I have some time to create.  I never have enough Birthday cards so that's the theme I'm rolling with today.  I also spotted the challenge over on The Flower Challenge ... actually,  that is where it all started!

Here's what I came up with . . .

I've had this Sue Wilson - Frames & Tags AVA die cut and laying on my work table so I knew I wanted to use it in my design. 

Sue Wilson Designs - Frames & Tags Collection  - Ava

Now to add my floral cluster & leaves.  To create this I've used the following dies:

Frantic Stamper - Dies - Spring Ivy

and the flowers & other leaves are from the

Sue Wilson Designs - Finishing Touches - Passion Flower

My Stampabilities stamped sentiment was embossed using PK Glitz green embossing glitter to add a little touch of sparkle for the birthday recipient.

A few other challenges to share in are:

4.  Brown Sugar February Challenge - Anything Goes
5.  Crafty Catz Challenge #492 - Anything Goes w/twist - embossing

Thanks for stopping by everyone and I hope you're having a FABULOUS weekend!
