~Just want you to know how special you are~

Hi there,

{I am super honored and delighted that this card made Top 3 at The Kraft Journal 8/7/12 Thank You So much to the DT for liking my card}

First of all, I need to say Happy Birthday to my Mama! I miss you and wish we were closer to celebrate!

I started with Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock and added my punched border to the side of my patterned paper applied to the center of the card base. A pink bow was tied and added to the center of a linen flower which was embellished with a beautiful rhinestone flower brad, twine, and leaves cut from burlap.

I am also joining in at The Kraft Journal - Use Any Sketch and Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge - All things from my stash!

Thanks for stopping by! 
~Tammy~
