I used a cling rubber stamp from Stampendous, called Botanical Daffodil for today's Birthday card.
The Birthday sentiment is from Flourishes Tag Lines, and was stamped using VersaFine onyx black ink.

The image was stamped to X-Press It blending card and coloured with Prisma Pencils, though I used an atyou Spica clear pen to 'go over' the pretty swirl. The bling is provided by the olive green pearls from Flourish with a Bling.

This tiny polka dot DP is from Simple Stories SN@P! colour vibe. Cut at 1" with one corner rounded.
 Foam squares pop the image up and the smooth white card forming the first layer which also has opposite corners rounded. This layer is adhered to the 4.25" x 5.5" base card that was trimmed from more smooth white card.

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of the hop..................
