And now for my project....

I created a birthday card for a dear friend :) The patterned papers are from Prima's Fairy Rhymes paper stack. The solid cardstock is from Tim Holtz. The edges were distressed with a Zutter Distress-It-All.

A Die-Versions Loopy Lace Whispers Die was used around the top and bottom edges of the center panel. A Tim Holtz Ribbon Flag die was used for the bottom banners. They were adorned with Prima Say It In Crystals.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The Sweet light bulb is a Prima Junkyard Findings Small Typo Bulb. Spellbinders D-Lites Corner Sprigs were cut with vellum and tucked among the flowers. The ribbon is from May Arts. The tag is a Spellbinders Charmed I'm Sure Die. Wish Big is from the new Simply Said Stamp Set.

A Spellbinders Labels Seventeen Die was used on the inside. Happy Birthday is also from the Simply Said Stamp Set.
