A Birthday Bash Hippity Hop!


Well, I'm delighted today to wish Jan Marie - the owner of Flourishes a very Happy Birthday!  In honor of this special day the Flourishes Family got together and made a little hop to surprise and celebrate her!



This Spring Bouquet stamp set from Flourishes is just SO very beautiful.  The flowers it combines and the great coloring potential just makes you swoon!  :)  I thought it would be perfect for this special occasion!

I took my color cues from this beautiful paper from K & Co.  This one is called Spring Blossom by Susan Winget and it has some gorgeous watercolory roses throughout the page, it's very dreamy!  This card is 5.5 x 5.5 inches.




And below is the inside (isn't that paper great???)    ...the sentiment is just for Jan Marie...I feel so blessed to be part of this Flourishes Family, and I have really been blessed because of her and her generosity to the team.   Have a wonderful Birthday Jan Marie!



Now here's all the Flourishes Family hopping along today for Jan Marie's Birthday...be sure to visit they have some beautiful things to share with you!  And pass on your HB wishes to her HERE.
