Birthday Wishes

It's the beginning of a new year, so once again, I am going to focus on trying to whittle down my bits and pieces stash.  I didn't add too much to it this year, but I also didn't do very well using it up.  So, here it is January 4th and I'm posting my first stash card of the year!
 Here we go: The large flower (made for me by my oldest daughter several years ago), the ribbon, and the little bit of pearl trim were all in the bits and pieces stash.  The large size of the flower has had me stumped for quite some time, but I found a perfect sketch for it.
I created the main panel with a Hero Arts script stamp  and some leaf images from PTI.  Then I added some die cut sprigs and scalloped borders.  The base layer was stamped with a crochet background stamp and light gray ink.  I finished the flower off with a light gray enamel dot as it seemed a little plain.

Thanks for stopping by.  I will be looking to create and post some more scrap cards soon.

Supplies:
Stamps: Hero Arts French script; PTI "Turning a New Leaf"; Verve sentiment; Our Daily Bread Designs crochet background
Dies: Verve "Sprightly Sprigs"; Spellbinders mini scalloped border die
