Blooming Birthday

Hello my friends! Hope you are all doing great. In my corner of this world that I call home, some rain has snuck up on us today. It's gloomy and wet, but I don't mind it at all. I love weather like this!

So, check out today's card...
I love this card in brown! But wouldn't it look great in raspberry, purple, red or any other color you heart desires? These flowers, from In Bloom, look so gorgeous stamped in cream ink onto any dark cardstock.
Finish it off with some glitter and you've got yourself a simply elegant creation.

I must be on some odd sized card kick, I haven't posted a regular A2 card in a while. Hope you don't mind. I just love how you can use a layout, that you would normally use for an A2 card, on a different sized/shape card and get a completely new and different look to the very same layout. Great way to boost your creativity, with out having to think too hard.

As always, thank you for stopping by today!
