Down to Earth Birthday Wishes ♥

I had some time today (before I started cleaning my craft room) to create a card for a very sweet friend of mine.  Like I mentioned yesterday, I bought a roll of double sided satin sash at WalMart and couldn't wait to try my hand at the satin, burnt edge flowers like some of the gals did for the JUGS57 Wild Card Challenge last week.  I did just that after my post last night and couldn't resist putting it on a pretty card today! 
I also used the sketch Andrea came up with for this week's JUGS58 challenge...isn't is great?  I find myself thinking of several different cards I can make using her sketch!  Today, I printed some of my patterned paper released at MTME in September called Down to Earth.  Aren't the colors fab?!  I love this collection ♥  I created the scalloped panel using my MTME Border Builders Scallop Dot cut file.  I used another one of my cut files, Trendy Tags Set #1 for my sentiment.  I only used the rectangle layer to hold over my sentiment and sponge around it with Pink Pirouette ink.  The sentiment is from the MTME So Sentimental set.  I sponged the edges of each panel with Tim Holtz Antique Linen distress ink and added some pretty pearls to keep it girlie ♥
Okay, that's all I have for you tonight!  With any luck, I'll get another card done before the Wednesday CTD challenge!  Crossing fingers and toes ;]  Here's to a SUPER week!  Clinking my glass of Syrah with those of you who partake, and I'm munching on a dark chocolate covered graham cracker.  Yum...nice way to finish a lovely weekend, don't you think?

This is beautiful Kristin! The flower is very striking against the pink and brown dp papers. The scallop border you created is so cool! I just love it!
