Birthday Wishes

This week turned out to be another doozy that didn't allow me much crafting time so I decided to work on a few birthday cards that I donate to local nursing homes. I used some papers that came free inside of a craft magazine from the UK. The papers are very thin and kind of glossy (magazine pages) so I adhered them to a plain card stock base and then embossed them with a folder by Cuttlebug to give them more heft. The sentiment was adhered to chipboard and fussy cut and I stacked stitched rectangle die cuts by Lawn Fawn. The teal layer was a little too bright so I added a vellum overlay to tone it down. Some teal and white bakers twine a a few rhinestones finished it off. I am really in the springtime floral mood...or so it appears!
