~Birthday Greetings~

Today I decided to play around with my House Mouse stamps and came up with this card. I really wanted to play with border punches and and die-cuts, so had I fun with them. Then while digging around in my supplies I ran across these really sweet Prima roses I'd picked up several weeks ago and forgotten about. Everything just really seemed to fall together with this card. I love when that happens! :) I followed a couple of challenges while making this card. First being a new challenge called Stampin Sisters in Christ. Their challenge is to make a card with food in it. And the second challenge is for Wacky Wednesday over at Rubbernecker Stamps. Their challenge is to use bling on your card in the form of glitter, pearls, rhinestones or whatever says bling to you. Well, I have absolutely no problem with bling as you can see! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day! :)
