Birthday Roses

Good Morning Everyone!!!

I hope you all had a great weekend.  Today I'd like to share a card I made for a member of the Birthday Card club.  This lovely lady said she liked the color green, so that's how I decided on this card's design.  (Please excuse the quality of the photo.  For some reason there seems to be a pink cast to the paper.  It isn't pink, it is definitely white.)

I started off with a piece of Bazzill card stock in Guacamole.  I then added an embossed layer using Georgia Pacific card stock and the Sizzix Lacy Brocade embossing folder.  To add some dimension, I repeated the layers.  For the embellishments, I used the Sizzix Sizzlits Branch with Leaves die and three shades of green roses by Recollections.  To finish off the card I tied on a piece of green Offray ribbon, added a layered oval cut with my Cricut and stamped with a Close to My Heart stamp and ink. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed the card.
