Happy Birthday

Hello everyone!  I'm back with a "Happy Birthday" card today.  You can never have too many of those on hand.  This one happens to be for my mother-in-law, so it's a little more serious rather than fun or cutesy.

All of the cardstock is from Recollections, except for the candle which is from the SEI ~ Winnie's Walls paper collection.  The decorative edge at the top of the card is cut with an EK Success ~ Dotted Scallop punch.  The beautiful frame is cut from the Elegant Edges ~ Cricut cartridge.  The candle is cut from the Wrap It Up ~ Cricut cartridge.  All of the flowers are cut from the Mother's Day Bouquet ~ Cricut cartridge.  For that little something extra, I added Star Dust ~ Stickles to candle's flame.  I did some penwork along the outside of the frame with a white ~ Sakura Gelly Roll pen.  And I added some beautiful Recollections ~ Pearls to the flower centers.  Here's a closer view:

That's it for now.  See you back here soon for another PKS Challenge.  Have a great week!
