The beautiful inspiration card is from Amy Kolling:
I love her beautiful yellow flower. This inspired the card that I made for my sister-in-law. I used the poinsettia die from MFT to create the flower. I first stamped a damask pattern (IO) onto Neenah Solar white cardstock with Versa Magic Thatch Straw. I die cut them and distressed the edges with Walnut Stain. I then decided to add another layer of stamping to the flower. I used another IO stamp and Antique Linen ink to have a subtle layer of writing on top of the damask print. I die cut the leaves from Echo Park patterned paper (sorry, I don't remember the name of the 6x6 pad).
The sentiment is from Paper Smooches - a set I got just before the holidays. I really like the 'happy birthday' font and size. It is hard to see the yellow in the photo - poor lighting on this cold, snowy day.
