Birthday Wishes

Hi, everyone. It has been so hectic here.Drs. appointments and shopping every day at Michaels, Hobby Lobby and JoAnns.  I bought over a dozen items and didn't pay full price for any of it. Yea!! I got McGill flower shapers kit,  new dies, embossing folders, 4 new B plates for my CB, photo box for storage and some inks. I call this week very good. Now I want to stay home and use all of this stuff.
My card today is a birthday card. It came about because I wanted to practice a flower I saw on a tutorial. This lady is so talented. You can see her work at Kittie Kraft.
This flower is made with Spellbinders - blossom 2. I liked it so much I had to use it on a card. The leaves are Spellbinders dies, flourish is Sizzix die and punches are MS hydrangea.
The labels are handcut rectangles that I used a ticket corner punch on. I won that punc h from Wendy at Livin Stampin Up. Thank you Wendy.
DCWV paper, a stamped greeting, bling and a computer sentiment and you're done.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Paper Playtime - birthday themed project
Little Scrap Pieces - must use a flower
Thanks so much for visiting. Hugs and God bless you all. Stephanie
