Birthday on the Side

Hi friends! Happy Thursday! I'd planned on posting this card earlier in the week, but migraines have slowed me down a bit (well, actually just stopped me in my tracks) the last couple of days. I'm feeling better now and have a thousand things to catch up on, so let's get to it...

The layout for the card is this week's Mojo Monday 330 turned on it's side.  The card base is 5.5" x 3.5".  I was working from scraps on my desk again and this poppy from Poppy Birthday had already been stamped, cut with the coordinating Build a Poppy Die Set and put together from a previous project, so I added the elegant leaves stamp from Bloom & Grow and cut with the coordinating Elegant Leaves Die.  The sentiment is also from Poppy Birthday and I added a little wooden butterfly coated with glossy accents and glitter.  The rounded rectangle piece is vellum cardstock embossed with a regal flourishes folder, then sponged with frayed burlap ink.  I sponged the same ink over the crumb cake portion that is embossed with the square lattice folder.  A bit of stitched ribbon and some chocolate pearls finish everything off nicely.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a fabulous day!
