Happy Birthday!

I was in need of a card for a co-worker and how nice that the challenge at Meljen's Designs is to create a birthday card.  For the challenge, the project must include a birthday sentiment.

For this card I used the Paper Craft Planet 100 member freebie.  I cut off the "Thank You" sentiment from the top of the image.  The sentiment was a recent freebie and can be found here on the blog.  I colored the image with alcohol ink markers.

I stamped a flower image to create a background on the top part of the card and used patterned paper for the bottom.  I mounted the image on spare foam leftover from trimming my rubber stamps.  That extra foam makes great dimensional dots! I added a flocked brad and ribbon from my stash.

Card measures 5.5" x 4.25"
