An Eye Opener


If all these little tiny flowers aren't an eye opener to wake you up this morning, nothing is....and that ribbon!!!  Yikes!  I really don't remember that ribbon being quite so bright on the card but since I don't have the card anymore, it could be!  This was a birthday card for blogging buddy Carol and it's already miles away from here.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAROL! I also don't remember this card being so busy looking....but when I look at it now all I can see are flowers!  And y'all know how well I do flowers!  LOL!!!  Anyway, flowers for Carol on her birthday!

The DP is from SU and image from Art Impressions.  Did a little paper piecing and zig zag stitching and it was pretty well done.  On the inside I put something like - glad it's your birthday and not mine.  Just a fun card for a very sweet lady.

Thanks for stopping by.........
Lynn

Oh she's just filled with joy, that it's _somebody else's_ birthday! What a great ole lady, and I love the paper piecing. Good job.(This P.Piecing stuff is not something I do well either- yours looks fab). Love that you used the trim for her dress too. Too much of a good thing is a Wun-da-ful thing. I'm sure Carol was tickled to death to get this one. So fun. TFS & Hugs. (Raining in SC today).
