Happy Birthday, You're in my thoughts

Hi friends, hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  Today's card is sure to brighten someone's day.  The sketch over at Seize the birthday is to make a feminine birthday card.  Here is the sketch:

I stamped the doily stamp in versamark then embossed with white embossing powder.  I used my 2 1/2" circle punch to punch it out after I had sponged some Daffodil Delight over the embossed image and cleaned off with paper towel.  Added my ribbon, stamped the sentiment, added the rhinestone to the middle, and popped up the doily with dimensionals.

My second card for today is for Fresh Squeezed Stamps: Squeeze-a-palooza #4 challenge.  There will be two winners, one will be randomly chosen and the other will be readers choice-the card with the most likes.  So please go over and vote for the card you like the best by clicking on "like" beneath your favorite card.  :)

For my card I used You Said It, Sister.  I was lucky enough to win this set during the release.  :)  I love the dot stamp in the set and to tie them in with the card I paper pierced around my 4 leaf clover.  I got my inspiration from this photo.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
