It's Birthday Time

February is a busy month of birthdays for me, so you will probably be seeing lots of birthday cards on the blog for a while. :)
Today's card is for a sweet lady who has a birthday soon. I really wanted to use this pretty floral paper by DCWV, from the Nana's Nursery Collection. I decided to use Very Vanilla as a base, matted it with Wild Wasabi and matted again with Rose Red, topping it with that pretty paper. Then I took a piece of Rose Red and used my Fiskars border punch (Lazy Days of Summer) to make a panel and put some ivory satin ribbon around it. Then I grabbed my new Label One nesties, cut the larger panel in Wild Wasabi and the smaller one in Very Vanilla. The sentiment is from SU's 'Elegant Cheer' (not available in Australia yet) stamped in Rose Red. The cute little flowers are done using the Boho Blossoms punch (SU). I punched 6 flowers (the small rounded one) out of Rose Red cardstock, curved the top one a bit and offset it over the other one. Then I punched 3 of the pointed flowers in Wild Wasabi and put the Rose Red flowers on top so that the green looks like leaves and added a large Kaisercraft 'Blush' pearl to each centre. Finally I finished off by adding small 'Blush' pearls to each corner.
I think it turned out kinda cute and I hope the birthday girl likes it! :)
That's all for today, thanks for visiting!! :)
