Flowers and Birthdays

I hope everyone's year has started off to be fantastic!  I personally am ready for spring, and we haven't even had any snow.  I'm just a spring, summer and fall kind of gal.  I hate being cold!

I am sharing with you today a birthday card for a very dear friend.  I made this card a month ago, so I hope I remember the correct sizes.  I am so far behind in posting!  Here are the details.

Size:  A2
Card Stock:  Recollections, Core'dinations
Patterned Papers:  My Mind's Eye
Bird:  This was on one of my scrapbook papers and was so cute, I decided to use it as my focal point of the card.  So easy!
Frame:  Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge cut at 3".  I then embossed the frame using my Cuttlebug.
Flowers:  Flower Shoppe Cricut cartridge.  I think these were the scalloped flowers, and they were cut at 4" and 3 1/2" (pink).
Leaves:  Spellbinders die
Sentiment:  Computer generated and punched with a 1 1/2" circle and a 2" scalloped circle. I then added a little Stickles.
Ribbon:  Unknown -- from my stash.
I added pearls in the corners and used a new Fiskars corner punch to add a little extra touch at the bottom.

I hope you like it.  If you take the time to comment, thank you!!!

Be inspired!
