Happy Birthday

Good Morning World! It's a great day to be alive in southwest Virginia. It's gonna be warm with lots of sunshine!!!! The frost this past week didn't hurt anything except my big leaf hosta's, they get bite every year, I may move them and get them closer to the house.
For my birthday this year I got a store bought card from a friend and I loved the fold, so I tried my hand at it and this is what I came up with. I started out with a 8.5 x 11 sheet of white card stock, trimmed it down to 10 x 7 and used Martha Stewart's Modern Garland border punch on both sides. then I cut some Stampin Up paper and glued it down in all 3 sections. the first part is 5x7, then the second section is scored at the 8 inch score line on the score pal. I then punched some white using MS Spiral Arches and glued it down to the center section.The image is from Inky Antics which I colored with Prisma Color Pencils. Added flowers I punched out and fern and yep, MS punches again. I should buy stock in her company LOL, love those punches. Okay that's it for now, yall take card, have a blessed day and I'll catch up later!
