Friend Birthday

This card started with the Tattered Floral flowers from Sizzix that I had on my desk still from doing my daughters card box for the wedding.  Then I started going through paper and just loved the color of this paper from the Crafty Stack from DCWV. Remembered I had some Basic Grey brads that I thought would go great with it to tie in the flower. The Fiskar ribbon was allready gathered.  I used Salmon Pearl Pens on the flowers in the paper and added the bronze pearl pens along with the sentiment stamp.  One of those cards that just comes together perfectly :)

Now that I see it uploaded the ribbon looks alot darker than the cardstock in the flower, but in real life they were very close.

Another sunny morning, wow that is two in a row.... although they say we are having temps like it is still March instead of May, but I guess I would rather have it a little more chilly then so hot you can't enjoy going out.

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment, it is much appreciated :)

Love this paper, too! It all does come together beautifully. I know how it is with those cameral tricks. Funny how photos turn out, isn't it? It looks very pretty from where I'm sitting!
