Raining Flowers Birthday card

Hi stamping buddies, TGIF! Yeah right, I have to work all day today and now the weekend and won't have a day off till next Wednesday. YIKES! I will be dead by then. Well dead tired anyway. LOL! I already feel that way this morning. I didn't feel so good when I got home last night so tried to take a nap but my phone kept ringing. So I got up and had some fruit and then started blog hopping and ran across one of my BFF's blog and she had a card similar to this   but much different that I liked so I am casing it from Julia at . So check out Julia's card and see what hers looks like. You should follow her too because she has some incredible ideas. She even has a free newsletter you can sign up for. You can tell her that I sent you too if you want. She is a dear dear friend of mine. Yep, I love her a lot. 

On this card I stamped the medium  flower from Raining Flowers and I used the Summer Star Fruit, Marina Mist and Real Red which was a Color Coach Combo. I go to my coach a lot to help with color combos. I stamped them and because I didn't have the perfect circle punch I used this framelit for the Apothecary Accents and I think it worked out fine. I sponged around each on with the coordinating colors and then popped them up with dimensions. I textured the Whisper White Card Stock with the Delicate Designs Embossing Folder and then sponged Marina Mist over it to pop out the design of the folder. I put some "Bling" on the flowers with a little Rhinestone. Then I stamped the greeting with the Petite Pairs stamp. It is a pretty simple card but I thought it turned out really pretty, don't you?  I love the simplicity of it. I think my niece witll like it and her birthday is this month. Well, I better start thinking about getting ready for work as I work the late shift tonight. Till 
6: 00 anyway.
