Happy Birthday


The challenge at the CASual Friday blog (CFC 72) this week is to 'toot your own horn' ie...make a card using your blog header as inspiration.

My header came from a card I made a while ago.  I edited the image in Picasa and added my title.  Luckily, I still had some of the flowers I used on my original card.

Here's my card.



The flower sticker is from K&Co., I added some stickels the embossing folder is Quatrefoil from The Paper Studio and the birthday sticker is from SRM.

I'm also playing along with this week's sketch at Retro Sketches (31).  I flipped it and took a few tiny, creative liberties with the sketch.  :)

Thanks so much for coming by to visit.

Thinking about it, it may be time to get a new blog banner.
