Jan Marie's Birthday!!!!

  Jan Marie - owner of Flourishes - has a Birthday this next week and the gals from the DT's have asked us to join in a special Birthday hop for this very Special lady by making her a Birthday card!!!!
  Check out the hop and the challenge here -

  I used 2 sets from Flourishes. The cherry blossums were done with watercolors onto watercolor paper - embossed with gold. I cut the flowers out with a Spellbinders die and added the phrases from the 'Inside and Out - Just Because' set ( which I just got in the mail today :)
   I added some gold accents with a gold Viva Decor pen and a paper bow which is a die cut from my friend Vicki!!! (she has designed a sweet handful of dies for Accu cut - one of them is the bow set - you can get the dies from Accu cut but you can get pre-cuts off Vicki's etsy shop and at Crafty Secrets too.
   All for me here today - back to the craft room (yup its still raining :)
    Take Care
