Hello friends.  Today I’m sharing a pretty birthday card that I created for my Mom featuring lots of beautiful dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.

I find that birthday cards are the most needed cards and no matter how many I make, I always seem to be behind.  This Birthday Wishes Circle Sentiment is a great addition to your die collection and it can be used over and over in different settings without looking like you are always using the same die.

Cheery Lynn Dies used:
B783 Birthday Wishes Circle

My Tea Roses were created by alternating layers of solid cardstock with Distress Ink paper.  I just love two tone roses.  I shaped the petals before layering them for a realistic rose look.

I topped my card off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using 5/8″ Rose Bloom and Regal Purple Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The bow was topped off with a pretty Heart Shaped Pearl Embellishment also from RRR.

I also ran a piece of Regal Purple Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon topped with Tutti Frutti Chevron Stripe Grosgrain Ribbon across the center of the card under the sentiment.
