Beautiful birthday card

Hi everyone!  I have a quick card to share then I resume packing for my trip to Phoenix for my Spellbinders Retreat!  I leave tomorrow morning and am super excited!!  My youngest SOOO wants to come with me -he has never been on a plane and it didn't help that he saw me pack Red Vines, lol!

This card uses the new StampTV kit, Springtime Silhouettes.  LOVE this set!  I used a marker for the flower portion and inked the stems with Old Olive.  Then I "stamped off" the image a second time and used it as a soft background for the sentiment.  The paper is from the Webster's Pages Garden Gala triple pack.  I just love using the delicate 1/4" silk ribbon this color is champagne and it is my FAVIE!!   The rhinestones and tiny flower are from Pizzazz Aplenty
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  See you when I get back next week.  I'll leave you with a close up picture.
