So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Happy Birthday

This is for 3 challenges....
Joan's  Garden's Challenge #5                  Paper Pretties PWS 139
Speedy Cat's Challenge #5
The challenge for Joan's Garden is to use
1)Coral/pink and green
2) Birthday
3) Vintage Paper
4) Handmade or punch flower

The challenge for Paper Pretties
is the Sketch.

The challenge for Speedy Cat's is self made flower.

I used the vintage paper from DCWV Marjposa, GKD pink cs, Mark's Finest orange cs. Then used the Spellbinders labels 4. The stamps are Great Impressions and Mark's Finest Happy Birthday colored with Smooch. I used the McGill flower punch to create the flower out of the DCWV dp and added some embellishments, crackle, pink, green, coral ribbon.

Another Happy Birthday card is done!
