Birthday Card ~ Spots and Plaid

OMGosh this summer is flying by.
A few years ago a very sweet co-worker gave me some sample 
scrapbooks she had created when she worked for CTMH.
My plan was to use the papers and embellishments to create cards.
She was going recycle them. I am recycling them into other projects. lol.
They have been hanging around my classroom waiting..... until now.
All the colors were already matched up and waiting for me.
This was so much fun. I should have done it sooner.
I just added some yummy Verve goodies and a pearl.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Flower and sentiment from the Be Blessed stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Flower cut using the Petal Points die set from Verve Stamps.
*Leaves cut using the Sprightly Sprigs die set from Verve Stamps.
*Design paper from Close To My Heart.
*Pearl from
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad from Tsukineko.

May your day always be filled with love and laughter.
