Happy Birthday to My Friend, Graphic 45 and JustRite

Hello Crafteteers!

It has been a glorious Saturday here in Nova Scotia.  We took our saint, Ella, for a Jeep ride with the top down and then for a long dip in the lake.  She stayed in the water for a while for a long cool soak.  She is definitely a lake lover in this heat!

Today I am sharing a birthday card using my favorite paper: Graphic 45's Bird Song.  I sparingly use the paper and I keep all the little scraps from my paper pad- which I ended up using as the banners on my card. JustRite's birthday sentiment from Winged Vintage Labels Two and Three (just came in the mail yesterday!!) was stamped onto a die cut from Spellbinders' Stately Circles.  Tim Holtz's antique linen ink supplied the aged look.  Under the die cut, I stacked three scraps of banners.  Two small doilies were assembled as were two roses with leaves.  The embroidered lace trim is a Recollections item.  Colored gems added some highlights on the die cut and the opposite corner of the card.  The card used my favorite things: a JustRite stamp, Bird Song paper, gems, Spellbinders and flowers.  

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
