Birthday Card ~ Florals & Flourish (post #1)

This is going to be a busy {birth} day for me.
First we are going out to lunch with one of my brothers.
We usually spend a lot of the {birth} day with him just hanging out.
Then later tonight when our daughter is off work we'll go out for dinner.
I hope to get in as much crafting time as the {birth} day allows.
Did I drop enough hints  yet as to what is special about this {birth} day for me? lol
Yup it is my birthday whoo who.
It started out the best way ever...
With a hug and a handmade card from my daughter before she headed off to work.
Who could ask for anything better?

My first card for today is you guessed it a {birth} day card.
Sorry I couldn't resist just one more little {birth) day hint. lol
This card is going to one of my sisters for her birthday in a few months.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Background and tag deco embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.
*Birthday sentiment from Verve Stamps.
*Floral stamp from CTMH.
*Circles cut using 7/8 & 1 in. EK Success punches.
*Banner cut by hand using paper from the Recollections Black & White pad.
*Tag cut by hand.
*Copic markers G21 & R83.
*Memento tuxedo black stamp pad.
*Almost all of the paper came from my scrap paper collection.

May your day always be filled with love.
