Sending Birthday Wishes

Hi Everyone! Happy May Day! First I want to say hello to my new followers. :) I really do appreciate all of you that read my blog, get email updates, follow and especially leave comments!

For today's cards I used Polka Dot Basics II, Wishing You and Everyday Button Bits (for the setiment) from Papertrey Ink.

There are lots of little details on this card. I scored a lattice design on the Aqua Mist card stock and curled out the top of the tulips to bring them to life. The focal point was cut out with Nestabilities Label One. Since I wanted it a little bit longer, I cut it out twice, trimmed down the second piece, taped them together, then covered the seem with buttons.

I finished the card with a black scallop trim piece and some black machine stitching. All ink, paper and buttons are PTI.

Hope you have a great day and are enjoying your weekend!
