Bloggers Challenge Week 38-Birthday Cards


This was a perfect challenge for me because I just happened to need a Birthday card for a special friend! Inspired by Bev Gerard's Botanical Beauty the idea for this soft and feminine card was born!

The Main image can be found in the SMALL BREEDS stamp set from Hanna Stamps. The set is SO sweet and versatile that you can use it for cards without a dog theme.

Small Breeds are available to purchase, along with four other new release sets, over at www.hannastamps.com

I used imaginisce paper as the foundation for the card. The base is Blush Blossom. SU! Markers add just the right colours to the rose bush and I used the circle, photo corner and small oval punch to create embellishments. A hint of stickles (he he!) completes this cheery Birthday card.
