Happy Birthday, Shirley

Hello there blog friends,
Today is a very special day...Maria is having a "Linky Party" to celebrate Shirley-Bee's Birthday! Before I get to my card, I wanted to share this photo...

This is for you, Shirley! I wish you a very Happy Birthday and many more!
And, now on to my card:


I wanted to create a bouquet of flowers, so I used my new WPlus9 stamp and die set. I die cut the container with silver foil cardstock, although my camera flash made it look dark gray and flat. The sentiment is PTI Wet Paint, and the sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh.

Thank you Shirley, for always inspiring us with your beautiful creations! I hope you have a great day with family and friends, and that all of your birthday wishes come true!!! 

If you would like to join in the Linky Party, or view all the beautiful cards that everyone created for Shirley, check out Maria's Blog ~Thanks for stopping by,

Barb
