Birthday Blessings

ETA: Have been asked how I made the flower, it was burlap ribbon. I frayed the end and rolled it onto a Gluber, nothing special.  Made sure the frayed end was the center of the flower.  I hope this helps Christine!

Happy day peeps, well the yard sale shopping this morning was a bigggg hit!  We got lots of great bargains, it was seven of us, so you can say the SUV and truck was, fun!  I wanted to play along with the Fusion challenge again, trying once again to get the peers votes.  It is not working well for me  I must say it is fast becoming one of my favorite challenges...luv the inspiration with a sketch; by far my two favorite types of challenges!  I went for broke and used both the sketch and photo, sweet photo; don't ya think?  I made the burlap flower from burlap styled ribbon kept it shabby looking.  I used the new Verve release set On Occasion.  Hope you Saturday evening is full of laughs...enjoy!
