Birthday Wreath

Grapevine wreath die is from Memory box.  I cut it out twice in two tones of brown.

The sketch for this card is from MFTWSC60.

Simple Stories Generations paper pack

Flowers made from 3 different Martha Stewart punches.  The white centers punch from $ bin at Michaels. Gemstone centers. Leaf and border punches also Martha Stewart.

McGill pine branch punch.

Sizzix leaf die has been cut up.

Tab made using HOTP Paper Pizzaz Folder tabs template.

Yellow stickles for centers of some of the flowers.

Here is a little closer shot of the flowers.

Saturday night we had 3 storms go through here, one of them pelted us with egg size hail, luckily no damage to our truck but alot of people had their windshields broken from the hail.  We had a tornado warning and we saw the wall cloud coming toward us but it never touched down thank goodness.

Hope you all made it through any storms that went through.  We have rain in the forecast for every day this week, hoping none of them gets as bad as Saturdays was.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by, and I appreciate your comments,
