Birthday Blooms

Here is my post live on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog today!

How are you all this afternoon??
Busy I imagine with family and friends and the preparation  for Christmas Eve.
I know I will be somewhat relaxing and heading out later in the evening for
a candlelight service at our country, tiny church, one of my favorite things to do
for this Holiday!!

Well, even though you all are busy, Diane here with you  to share a card,
I hope you can take a minute and visit with us here today!!


I am done with all my Christmas cards and it's time for new things.
I created a birthday card using a card layout I saw on Pinterest that I loved!

Using a few papers from my own stash I created my backgrounds.
I added a scallop edge along my paper using Spellbinders Classic Edges One
which I embossed with Crafts Too Dots Embossing Folder.


The image is from JustRite Poppies Labels Twenty Nine and colored with Copics.
After the coloring was done, I used Spellbinders Heart Circles to cut it out.

The birthday sentiment at the top is from the 

I finished my card with a bow and a button.

Thanks for stopping by and "Merry Christmas" everyone!!
