Let’s light the candles and strike up the music, the owner of Flourishes – Jan Marie Caruso – is celebrating a birthday and we’re helping her by getting the party started with a Birthday Hop to honor her special day!   Hop over to Jan Marie Caruso's blog and wish her a Happy Birthday!   You can start at the Flourishes Blog or continue from here and just click on the links below!   Happy Birthday Jan Marie!  Blessings to you for a wonderful year!









I am using Flourishes Sunflowers and Kids Play stamp sets.  I am using Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock.  I stamped my image and sentiment using Memento tuxedo black and rich cocoa inks.  I colored my image with Flourishes Copic Color Collections.  I used some aqua ink to lightly stencil on the inside of the spellbinders circle.  I used some distressing camomille ink on all the edges.  I am using some BasicGrey Curio paper pad.  I used a BasicGrey glazed brad to layer with a button to create a more vintage feel.  I finished with a bow and pearls!
