Happy birthday Gina!

Hi everyone!  Welcome to a special birthday blog hop for the fabulous Gina (of Gina K Designs)!  I have had the honor of designing with Gina for over 3 years now and can say with all honesty that Gina is sweet, generous and one of the nicest people in the crafting industry.  Gina, thank you for allowing me to be a small part of your family!
**** Happy birthday Gina! ****
Here is the birthday card coming your way.  I used one of my favorite stamp sets, Hello Sunshine and a piece of the new Color Companion's Fresh Asparagus double stitched ribbon.
This set is sold in both clear and rubber (I linked clear), I have the rubber version and one advantage with rubber is the ability to use markers.  To stamp the flowers, I inked the stamp with 3 colored markers and 2 on the leaves.  I finished the card with a strip of washi tape along the bottom and some yellow rhinestones.

Please check out the other DT members who have birthday wishes and cards for Gina!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!  Here is a close up picture.
