This card was made from a sketch I found at Taylored Expressions. The main idea was to use three different patterns of paper. I used a MS border punch across the middle, but you could easily substitute ribbon there for a more simple, straightforward look. The Verve flower is colored with Copics and layered onto Nesties Labels 11. I couldn't decide if my doodads should go on the Nesties to accentuate the curves or on the border. As you can see, the border has them, & I like it. : )
I'll be submitting this card for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge this week which is to make a card or project with flowers on it. I will also be using this to celebrate a dear friend's birthday with her. I am deeply thankful the Lord saw fit to provide such a sister-in-Christ....like Anne Shirley and Dianna in Anne of Green Gables. (Although I'd like to think we keep each other out of trouble instead of getting into it!!)
Thanks for checking in on me and my stamping. Blessings, Laurie

Birthday Card for a Special Friend
As you can see, I have two watermarks on my picture today. How that happened? I have no idea! For fun, let's call it a tribute to Kristine who gave me this lovely watermark, complete with that cute heart! Thanks a bunch, Kristine!!
