Feliz Cumpleanos, Maria!

 It's time again to share another card I made for ABC Toys & Crafts! This week I have used a super cute Stampavie image. I chose a birthday cake with candles from The Rachelle Anne Miller set called "Cakes Are Yummy".  

 I love these papers, too. And the colors coordinate perfectly with the Prima flowers. And check out how great the metal flower brad (which I found I had in my stash) looks in the flower center! 

 I  watercolored the image using Prisma watercolor pencils, and added some Stickles on the candle flames and the blue dots. 

 And check out how great the metal flower brad (which I found I had in my stash) looks in the flower center! I just love these colors!

And finally I added a "Happy Birthday" wish in Spanish, as this card will be given to a super sweet lady who has waited on me for years at one of my favorite stores. It's was her birthday a couple of days ago and I will be going there this morning. Hopefully she won't mind it being a tad late ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you will leave me a comment or just say "hi", as I always love hearing from you! 
As always, I wish you blessings~
