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 just about the entire Flourishes Crew!  Why not leave some love on her blog HERE and while you are hopping around, pay a visit to the Flourishes team members who are honoring her special day!




For my card I am using one of my all time favorite Flourishes sets.  I am using Birds and Vines stamp set.  I chose to use the smaller image in the set.  I inked with Tuxedo black Memento ink  and stamped on Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock.   I sponged the edges.  I highlighted the flower images with some glitter using a Quickie glue pen For the sentiment I am using the Hollyhocks set.  I chose the sentiment It's Your Day!  I used the next to smallest die in the Spellbinder's Doily Heart Circles for my sentiment tag.  I finished with some black lace and cream seam binding bow topped with a flower and natural colored memory thread curly que.  

In honor of Jan’s special day, the worker bees behind the scenes decided to have a COLORFUL sale to help celebrate! TODAY and TOMORROW only – all Copic Markers will be on sale 15% off. Just use the code COPIC15 in the coupon code box at the time of check out to get this fun discount! So, join us in singing her a special little birthday song! Be sure to check out all the fun and festive wishes and grab some great ideas for birthday cards along the way!




Happy Birthday Jan! 
We hope your day is the absolute BEST 
and cheers to an even better year ahead!

  28. Wow, how very beautiful. I am always scoping out the cardstock and paper supply area of the craft stores. I would love do be able to make something so beautiful, I'm just very unsure of myself in the paper crafts still.

    You are very talented! Thanks for stopping by Theresa's Mixed Nuts. I am definitely following back. I can't wait to browse the rest of your blog and hopefully get some inspiration to give it a whirl at coming up with my own card creation!
