Simple Birthday Card


Flourishes is having a birthday party for their designer, Christine Okken.  
Decided to take a break from holiday cards to play along. Took awhile to figure out what to do, but in the end I went back to one of my favorite sets called Fanciful Flourishes.  The image was stamped in a row using VersaMagic Aegean Blue. Lucked out with this  blue shimmer cardstock being a great match for the scalloped mat die cut with Spellbinders edge die. I love the look of this elegant sentiment which is from the same set & is stamped in Memento Gray Flannel. The panel is mounted with foam tape & pearls finish off the card.  
Happy Birthday week, Christine!
I'm also entering the challenge at Simon Says Stamp, Monday. Thank you all for stopping by.
