Birthday "Wish"

Lately I have been missing contest deadlines - sometimes just by a minute or two!  But not tonight.  I went to The Shabby Tea Room and they had just posted their new challenge.  Inspiration hit me, I was wide awake and so I have a card ready in plenty of time.

The challenge this week at The Shabby Tea Room is to use colors from their photo (which I've tried unsuccessfully to link here), and include material and flowers.  I opened my fabric cupboard and this luscious lime green fabric practically fell into my hands.  It is something I saved from a flower bouquet so I thought it would be perfect to use it as a "floral wrap" on a stamped vase of flowers.  From there everything fell into place.  I mimicked the challenge photo fairly closely as far as the layout of flowers.

Lots of friends and family members have birthdays in September so everything I make for the foreseeable future will be birthday cards.

Thanks for stopping by!
