Another birthday card

August is the month for birthdays in my family, and so I've been busy.  Just a quick post today to share this one for my youngest sister.

Jar of flowers

When she was still living at home, purple was her favorite color, so I used that color the most.  This stamp has been on my wishlist for over a year......I found it earlier this week at a local craft store, and was thrilled to get it.  It's called Jar Bouquet, by Stampendous, and I simply stamped it on white cardstock and colored it in with markers and a few colored pencil shadings.  My sentiment is made up of Simon's Happy Birthday die, with stamps from Hero Arts and Winnie & Walter.  

Thanks for visiting today!
