I have really enjoyed the framed cards with Spellbinders Fleur De Lis rectangles lately so I went with another card that style. The Zinnia's were calling my name for this birthday card. The flowers are colored with copic collections Sunflowers and Spring Greens. My sentment tag is using Birthday Pennants with a antique gold plaid ribbon bow to finish it off.

Be sure to check out the birthday celebrating on the girls blogs Leslie, Dawn and Tammy. Have a fabulous day!
