Birthday with flowers

Hello Folks,

Just a quick post for a card that I created yesterday.
I wanted to post it y'day only, but my lazy bones didn't get me to do the job. Very bad on my side..pheww!!!

Hope you are enjoying the sun (or shades at some parts of the world).... Here its really getting hotter each day. And I just wanted to grab some coldie and enjoy it in some cozy cool corner. Howz the idea? :)

Now for the card, I created this card for the Photo-synthesis Challenge. I like the blog idea, first its green things and also promote reusable items. Although I have not used any this time, but will try to reuse some item next time :). I have a habit of keeping items at a safer place to be used in future and then its the case of 'out of sight, out of mind' with me..lolzz. Will have to peek in every drawer and corner for keeping them handy for the next time :). I know, enough of my whack whack!

The challenge this time is of picture inspiration and this is what I created:
I never tried this color combo till yet. but it turned out quite good :). Do you also think alike? :) Here is another look of the card:
Most of stamping... bit of punching.... adorned paper piercing.... distressing.... cutely handmade paper bow and sprinkle of bling and brad.... gave me this card. :) Hope you like it :)

You rocked all the challenges! I hear you about having a 'stash' of things to be used. My craft area is filled with them. LOL. I'm so glad you joined us at PSC and hope to see you again.
