Birthday Surprise - CK #93

Hello my blogging friends!  Happy Thursday! What can I say? It's been sunny, my flowers are growing. We're supposed to be getting more rain by the weekend. I hope not as much as we had over Memorial Day.  Been having some issues with my Paisley kitty so I'm taking her to the vet on Thursday. I can't believe she's 15 1/2 now, my oldest in the family. She's been acting kind of weird lately and with her age, I thought it might be a good idea to have her checked out. 

Well, on to my card. It's Thursday, so that means time for another creation for Creative Knockouts! Our theme this week is "Use Your Stash."  Now I know that you all have a stash of something in your stamping supplies that you can use. I used a lot of stash stuff for my card.

 Materials Used:
  • Image - Art By Miran - Birthday Surprise
  • Sentiment - Lili of the Valley
  • Cardstock - Xpress It Blending Card; Stampin Up - Primrose Petals (This is really a pretty color)
  • Designer Paper - Lili of the Valley - Nit Wit - Always & Forever collection
  • Accessories: - Ribbon, Stampin Up - Primrose Petals; Flowers, Wild Orchid Crafts; Martha Stewart Leaf Branch Punch; Stampin Up Regals Dots; Spellbinders Die
