Happy Birthday

Happy Thursday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. The days are getting a lot shorter. I just noticed that tonight. But, it is still warm and our flowers are still blooming. 
In fact, I was able to cut quite a few today and made a beautiful arrangement. I took them to a new neighbor along with some of our tomatoes and one of my cards. I wanted to welcome them to the neighborhood.
My hubby has already met them and I was way past due to introduce myself. She loved the flowers and asked if she could come over and take a look at the gardens. My hubby has our front and back yards looking so beautiful. He has quite a variety of flowers planted. I get to cut them and share with friends and family.
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for the design team call that Cheery Lynn Designs was having. I didn't make the team but I still liked the 3 cards that I submitted. Here is another.
I used the sketch #450 from Splitcoaststampers.  My background designer paper is from the Stampin-Up "greenhouse gala" collection-colors are peach parfait and pear pizzazz.
I layered over that a frame cut from the Cheery Lynn Designs die "arabian night" in peach parfait.

On the rectangle panels I used the same designer paper  and stamped a flower from the Stampin-Up  "nature walk " set in peach parfait. My birthday sentiment is from the MFP set "oopsy daisy".

I cut a flower from another Cheery Lynn Designs die and added a heart center.
To complete my card I used May Arts white mesh and layered some Stampin-Up  peach parfait ribbon.
Well that's it for me today. Time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next time.......God bless.
