Birthday Wishes

 April and September are big birthday months for our family (and friends, too): there are at least four this month.  I don't usually make square cards, but since I will be sending this one to my sister with her gift and I thought the sketch looked better as a square rather than a rectangle, so I gave it a go.  And it just so happens that lilacs are my sister's favorite flowers, so this little Cocoa image was just perfect for her.
I dressed up the centers of the flowers with a little bit of liquid pearls.

Challenges:
Sweet N' Sassy Digi Challenge #98--think spring
Creative Inspirations #208--let's get krafty (must use kraft paper)
Sweet Sketch Wednesdays #200--sketch


Supplies:
Stamps: Sweet N' Sassy "Lilac Cocoa" digi; Verve "Joyful Blooms" sentiment
Spellbinders charm die
