Happy Birthday

Hello!  I've been doing quite a bit of crafting this week, trying to keep my hands busy with crafting.  I have a theory that if my hands are full of colored pencils, adhesives, papers and such they cannot be lifting goodies into my mouth.  Unfortunately, I'm only partially successful, lol.  

I thought I should post this before I forget...  I did remember to take a photo this time, which in itself is pretty amazing.  I'm always thinking about it just after I like the flap on the envelope.  

These lovely blue, green and yellow papers are from a 6x6 pad, Sun Kiss by Prima.   I'm having lots of fun with it.  Under the digi there are 2 texture layers, a rectangle of burlap and a coppery ribbon (recycled from a candle).  In person you can see all the layers though in the picture they don't show up so well.  I added some gold Stickles on a few of the flowers.  I think that is becoming my trademark.  I absolutely love Stickles!

Thanks for letting me share with you.  Hope you enjoyed looking.  Have a lovely Autumn day!
