It's Your Birthday

This is a 6"x6" card. I used a striped cardstock from the Flower Shower Stack by DCWV, in fact all the patterned cardstock came from that stack. I cut a magenta rectangle, at 5 3/4"x2 3/4," and a patterned rectangle 1/4" smaller. I then wrapped the rectangle with two pieces of rick rack. I used Give a Hoot to cut some faux rick rack. The rick rack is cut to length of 6." I embossed the white layer with the Polka Dots folder. I cut a 2 3/4" circle from the green patterned cardstock and a 2 1/4" circle from a shimmery white cardstock. I then used Walk in My Garden to cut a 2" flower and a 1" ladybug. I then used some magenta Stickles to edge the flower. The ladybug is pop-dotted. I cut a rectangle from the same green patterned cardstock at 3"x2" and a white rectangle at 2 3/4"x1 3/4." I used Birthday Bash to cut the sentiment, also fit to length of 2 3/4." I pop-dotted the rectangle and added some gems to the corners.
