Happy Birthday

I made this card for the challenge at Joan's Gardens. I haven't played for awhile and I have a friend who has a birthday coming up. The background paper is from Gina K. Designs but the rest was purchased at Joan's and I love her store and she only charges what it costs her to ship, have to love that. The dies I used are Cherise Label, Tiffany Frame both by Memory Box. Mini Fanciful Flourish and Exotic Mini Butterfly both by Cheery Lynn. I think I might have gotten the pearl swirls at Joan's but not sure since it started out as a big swirl and I've cut it into smaller pieces and this was what was left. Here are the rules for the challenge at Joan's Gardens. Keep your fingers crossed that I win. Here is what you need to do:
  • Use a plaid background
  • Use something dimensional
  • Use an embossing folder
  • Make a friend a birthday card
  • You must use a product sold at Joan's Gardens. Also, mention that you are doing the card/project for Joan's Gardens Challenge. It would be nice if you would add this link to your post:
 Thanks for stopping by. Sharon
