Grateful!

Hello my friends! Today is a very special day for me, it is my Birthday!!!! Yess, I am getting old-er, LOL. I am so grateful to have a great family, great cyber friends and a great Lord who is always blessing me and being with me.
So, in celebration of my special day, I have a very purple-plum card for you. I remember when I was 15, every outfit I bought was purple, even my earrings, (big ones!) LOL, oh those times!!! My card was inspired by this wonderful flower I saw at the Moxie Fab World Blog. When I Lord Have Mercy (last week sketch).
saw it I said, I have to try to make something like this. The sketch comes from To make the flower, just draw circles onto your PP, it doesn't need to be perfect. Tear the circles, then stamp any image you want in coordinated ink, sponged borders and voila!!! I used the small images from Frames set by smARTworks. The sentiment is from SU Small Script (retired)
Card Recipe:
Card Stock: Pale Plum, Perfect Plum, White.
Paper: Hearthrob
Stamps: Frames (smARtworks), Small Scripts (SU)
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Memento Sweet Plum, Plum (Color Box).
Embellishments: Gold Brad, Purely Pomegranate Satin Ribbon (SU), Lavender Rhinestones (Kaiser Crafts), Corner punch (for scallop border).
Accessories: Sewing machine, White thread, Daubers, SU Dimensionals

Hope you like it.
Have a great and blessed day.
