Birthday Card with Sepia Swirl Flowers

Hello and Happy New Year!

Winter has just begun, but already my mind is on flowers! Deena's Bottle Cap Images - Sepia Swirls provided me with the perfect opportunity to create a lovely floral birthday card.

The bottlecap images are not something that I have worked with very much, and I thought the new year would be a great time to explore some new creations. 

I love the Sepia Swirl images because they appeal to my love of vintage and they are so striking with the black floral image against the sepia script. There are six different one-inch round images -- and you will receive six of each on a page.

For my card, I punched out four different images with my 1-1/4 inch punch. I like the white border with this size punch because it really makes the images pop against the kraft paper flowers that I adhered them to. I cut out stems and leaves with black card stock and glued them to a kraft card that came with a panel of canvas stitched to it. I glued the flowers to the top of each stem.

I attached the Happy Birthday panel to the bottom corner and adorned that with two pearl embellishments. The color of this card is so perfect of this time of year -- the flowers are so sweet but they don't look out of season.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Wishing you all a wonderful New Year!
