A Bright Happy Birthday!


My Auntie Pat turns 70 in a few weeks and I wanted to make a nice cheery card to help her celebrate!  I think this meets the criteria of both cheery and bright!  I used three Paper Smooches sets to make the card.  One for the green background, another with the flowers and a third for the sentiment.  Yes...I am in love with these sets.  I added a touch of chevron ribbon from aMuse and we were ready to roll.  I am entering this in the current challenge over at Jay Gee's Nook.  I loved the pattern on the wire basket in the bottom right and the circle lanterns in the top right.  I'll be sending this off shortly with lots of love to my Auntie Pat!

By the way, I nominated you for a Liebster as my way of saying thank you for all of the inspiration. I know you've gotten one before. :) I just wanted you to know.
