Happy Birthday Card

   Just Inspirational Challenge - This is the inspiration photo to use

 
This is my card based on the inspiration photo.  Used the colors and flowers.
 
I've been busy all week with painting and spring cleaning our house.  I decided to take this afternoon off from working on the house and make a few cards for upcoming birthdays. I used a cut file #6847 that I bought at the Silhouette store and cut out shapes with my Cameo die cutting machine. Aqua background layer is embossed with a pretty Darice basketweave folder that my friend Cely sent to me last month.  White cardstock is Bazzill textured.  Added brads to flower centers and a sheer ribbon.
