Garden in Bloom Happy Birthday

Today is my friend Kristina’s birthday.  We met three years ago at a Stampin’ Up! convention.  Last year we went up on the stage together for her 10th Stampin’ Up! anniversary and my 5th. I was very nervous about going up there but it was special because we did it together.  The second picture is from several years ago. Happy Birthday, Kristina!

My card today uses the stamp set Garden in Bloom. Although you can use an outline for the flower, I chose to just use the “inside” part (see the picture below of the stamp set).

After stamping, I used the Decorative Dots embossing folder.  My sentiment comes  from the stamp set Cottage Greetings.  I used the Lots of Labels Framelits and sponged each piece with Daffodil Delight.  I finished it off with a little bow using  Cucumber Crush Dotted Lace Trim.

I will be back later and add the supply list.
