Wish Big Birthday

I imagine you've all been looking at Christmas cards almost non-stop lately.  How 'bout something different?
I need a birthday card for someone special this month, and I chose the sketch from Mojo Monday to help me out.  I picked the square version.


The papers I used are from DCWV's Lemon Flower stack.  It's happy to be taken off the shelf!


The sentiment panels were made from Floral Doily Motif, circle and Beaded Circle dies (Spellbinders).  The stamp is Verve's Birthday Phrases.  I stamped the word "wish" first, then "big" underneath.


Amidst all these holiday cards, it's nice to see a butterfly - even if it's a paper one:


There is some shimmer to a few of the flowers on this paper.  This photo does not quite do it justice, as we all know how hard it is to photograph shiny things.


I'm off to do some Christmas shopping, online.  That's my FAVORITE way to shop.  I get to shop in my comfy clothes, with no crowds to battle.  Ahhhh....
