This is beautiful ! I'm surprised at just how much the dry embossing adds to the card. I really need to pull those out more, judging by this. It's just beautifully put together.

Welcome back, Marilyn! I missed your posts! Good to hear it was a wonderful trip. :)

Your card is so lovely. Such a pretty layout and the doily looks so sweet behind the JR stamp/die cut. The dry embossing is the cherry on top!

Hugs!

Aw, didn't you get any snow last weekend ;) My mom is coming out from Vancouver next week & I've told everyone they better not say anything about it. She's just about convinced herself it never goes above 10C here. lol!
I wish the CB folders had the names printed on them! Would make it so much easier to remember :) I know the one you used is one of my favourites, though! I love how it looks on the gingham. And that butterfly, and those flowers...such a soft & pretty card!

Hi Marilyn. Your Happy Birthday card is so pretty. I love those colors you've used together. The sweet lacy doily behind your sentiment looks really good and accentuates the white stamping that you've done around "Happy Birthday". I also love those dimensional die cut butterflies. So delicate and pretty. The dimenisnonal flowers look awesome over the leafy flourish. <3 Candy
