Happy Birthday!

Hi there! I'm heading to a surprise 40th birthday party later tonight, so yesterday I sat down and played with some of my new goodies from Flourishes! I decided to use the current Timeless Tuesday Challenge too...the theme this week is a sketch! The Bring Back Beautiful theme is Spring, so it works for that too!

I scaled my card down instead of making a big and tall card, so this one is just 3"x6"! I used some pretty DCWV papers and added shades of purple and of my favorite color combos!

I knew the second I saw this Magnolias stamp set that I HAD to have it! I've colored the small corner magnolia image from the set with Copics and cut it out carefully. Underneath is a corner made up of two of the magnolia leaves border image. There's some Marianne die flourishes, ribbon and a sparkly bow and lots of gems! I added some Stickles to the center of the flower too. My sentiment is from the Botanical Bookplates Vol. 1 set which is new too!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
