Sweet Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone!!  I am on a card making roll!  I saw the amazing Waltzingmouse sketch (WMSC114) this week and had to play along.  
This card uses all of my favorite things.  I love all the new My Mind's Eye papers, these are from The Sweetest Thing, Bluebell 6x6 pad.  I also love all the Prima flowers (and honestly, I don't use them enough) and my favie new WMS set is Compact Sentiments.  And last but not least - my Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities!  Yes, even with all the new and wonderful Labels and Shapeabilities set, my all time favorite dies are circles!
I followed the sketch pretty much exactly, but the center strip panel looked better at an angle rather than straight across.  I think it had to do with my circle and flower cluster.  The sentiment was stamped a bit too high, so I added some rhinestones to fill the space.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.  Here is a close up picture before I go.
