{happy birthday card}

I have used up so many of my birthday cards in my stash lately!! I also gave many cards to my friend, Marti, who's hubby is an officer in the Army, stationed in Afghanistan. She sends him cards every few months. This way, he has a constant supply of cards for every occasion, for his men to browse through and send to their loved ones. {Very awesome, right??}

A pre-made black Bazzill card is the base for this birthday card. I pop-dotted the yellow bazzill piece onto the gray worldwin embossed cs. The accordian flower was made from the worldwin gray cs, and sanded lightly to make the circle pattern more visible. The accordian flower is finished with a yellow button and prima resin flower. I layered the flower onto a jenni bowlin heart die that was machine stitched down. The sentiment is a Basic Gray rub on. The tiny flowers are older Maya Road rub-ons that I added to this card at the last minute. I think they add a touch of sweet charm. :)


Paige, at the create blog, has challenged everyone this week to make a card using accordian flowers. I now have a few accordian flowers in my stash, just because they are so pretty and fun to make.

Thanks for coming by my blog today! :)
hugs, patti
