A Home Sweet Home Birthday Card

I'm back today with a happy birthday pocket card with a bakery twist to it. This again is that Carta Bella Home Sweet Home collection that I've been using so much. I love the versatility of these patterns, especially the B sides. They have that old vintage look reminiscent of the October Afternoon collections that I can't seem to find anymore.

For my flowers, I went with I Am Roses. Along with this big white rose and tiny red rosebuds, I added two of their newer #S15s... yummy. I placed a small order for these awhile back, but I can see now, I'll need more of these beauties. 

I stamped my happy birthday tag with coffee Archival ink to match the chocolate icing on the cake (I'm getting hungry).

I tied my tag with a bit of the ivory burlap string by May Arts. I use a ton on this stuff and purchase it by the full spool... the only way to go to save money on some of these supplies.

The die cuts are from the HSH ephemera pack....

and popped up with adhesive foam dots.

I put two IAR #S10 blossoms at the top and My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose cotton trim down the side.

We have a big weekend coming up. Hope you have a special one planned, too!

Thanks for stopping by!
