Muse #27 & MFW: Bday Card Challenge ~ Wish Big!

Happy happy Friday!! We have had the best weather for the last couple of days. Perfect temperatures and NO humidity!! I'll take it. Max is a happier boy too, long walks again and playing with his big ball in the backyard...silly little pup. So how about a card before I do a bit of housework. This one is for the Muse challenge where my very dear blogging friend Tracey McNeely is the Monday Muse!! And since I made this into a birthday card, I'll also link up at the Moxie Fab World birthday card challenge. Here's my take on Tracey's card.


All of the stamps are Papertrey Ink. I thought the sunflowers would make a nice summer or early fall birthday card. The only sequins I had in the correct colors were large, so I added a sparkly gem to their centers! The smaller sunflower, it's center and two leaves are popped up with foam tape.


Okay, that does it for me. 
I'll be back tomorrow with my final headliner Retro Sketches card. 
Hope you'll stop by ~Lisa
