A flowery birthday card

Hi, Shirley and Paul!  We had a good visit today - you might be the first friends "in real life" who know about this card making blog!
Challenges for today: - to use stamped flowers.  I added other flowers, and used the ODB sentiment from the Happy Birthday set.
/ - The image comes from the Penny Black set "Purrfect Day".  The challenge is a CASE/inspiration.  I used the primarily blue color scheme, as well as the large circle to back the rectangular image.  The flowers, ribbon and brad are also similar to the inspiration piece. - I recycled the blue I used to mat - it came from the textured CS cover of an annual financial report my hubby received. - anything! - I used DP I have had for a long time, as well as that recycled blue - saved for a couple of years!

Image - Penny Black.   sentiment - Our Daily Bread.  Colored with pastel chalk pencils.
Misc DP, ribbon, Memento ink, star brad, Petaloo flowers, rhinestones.
