Sweet Birthday Wishes

With Spring here, I decided that I wanted to create a bright and sunny card.  I picked up my MME Howdy Doody pad and saw the beautiful flower paper and knew this would be perfect.


I die cut a circle from this pretty little mini doily paper and stamped it with a WMS compact sentiment.  I layered on top of a pinked edge circle cut from light pink felt.  I only have quite small circle dies so added a paper doily to create a bigger background.  I finished with a pale yellow satin bow and tied a peach / coral button with button twine.
