A Fabulous Birthday

This card started with the new paper I purchased from WeR Memory Keepers "Anthologie".  The colors are so pretty and I could not wait to create with them.   Joan's Garden is having a challenge in which you create a pretty card with flowers you make.  The flowers on this card began with a Spellbinder Scalloped Circle.  I used four of the dies and two DP papers.  A little crunching and a brad/pearl and the flower was done.  Well maybe alot of crunching was needed on both flowers as the paper is a little stiff.  This is a technique that I used a couple of years ago and have not done since.  A sentiment from the Penny Black set "Sweet Wishes" was stamped on an oval cut with a Spellbinder "Floral Oval".  A string of pearl gems frames the sentiment.  This paper is popped up on the card base.  Pearl gems also highlight two of the corners.  Several layers of the DP used in the frame and flowers make up the base of the card.  A fun and really a rather simple card to make.  Hope you enjoy
