Happy Birthday Blues...

My stash of birthday cards is pretty skim.  I loved the colors in the Stampin' Royalty color challenge so I thought I would make another birthday card.  I used the sketch from Fab Friday as a template for my card.  I really wanted to start using my new stamps and fun stuff that I bought myself before Christmas.

I broke in my honeycomb embossing folder for the background.  Then, I used the Framelits to easily cut out the stamped flowers and used the pearl pen to add a little dimension to the centers of the flowers.  I haven't bought the Framelits for the Bitty Banners yet so I had to cut out the Happy Birthday sentiment by hand.
