Happy Birthday, Jan Marie!!!!!

 


Let’s light the candles and strike up the music, the owner of Flourishes – Jan Marie Caruso – is celebrating a birthday and we’re helping her by getting the party started! Why not leave some love on the Flourishes blog HERE and while you are there, start to hop on through the Flourishes team members who are honoring her special day! And you can also hop on over to HER place on the web HERE and wish her a Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday Jan Marie!



I thought I'd use one of my favorite Flourishes sets - A Year In Flowers. I stamped the February flower from A Year In Flowers, Set 1 on Classic White card stock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers. Then I cut it out and popped it up on foam on an element cut with Petite Oval Nestabilities dies. I stamped the sentiment on more Classic White card stock, cut it out with a Tags Trio die and added the birthstone for February. Then I added a bow with some matching twill and tied on the sentiment tag with a button and baker's twine. Wishing you the happiest birthday ever, Jan Marie!!

Now be sure to check out all the other Flourishes designers to see what they have!
