Pretty Birthday

I've been replenishing my stash of birthday cards this week. I pulled out what I have left of Stampin" Up!'s Peaceful Poppies DSP. Pretty flowers for a pretty birthday card.

 I also needed to do my card for Tuesday Morning Sketches

I spotted this last strip of paper with the purple poppies. Then I found some purple paper to match the flowers. The die cut circle label is from the same SU bundle. I added some sprigs and berries from the Forever Fern and Botanical Prints sets. The sentiment is an old retired one from SU. You may have to do a close up look to see the gold thread behind the sentiment.

Cheryl, I don't know when your birthday is but this one is for you. I thought of you because you like purple so much.


  1. Donna, you are such a sweetheart! I LOVE this card--and not only because it's purple. The DSP is gorgeous (I love poppies, too) and I like the layout a lot. My birthday's in January, but I'll just consider this an early birthday card. Thank You!! FYI, you asked how often we get to see Sebastian. It was once a year before the pandemic upended international travel. We went to visit every other year, and they came here to visit on the alternating years. Now, though, we haven't seen him in twoi years. He's thinking of going to college in the U.S., so if he does, we may get to see him more often.

  2. Beautiful! I love the poppy paper!!
    Thanks for playing along this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches
