Happy Birthday!

Today's card is for my wonderful upline, Glenda!  It was her birthday yesterday, so I wanted to make her a special card. :)  My inspiration for her card is from a few different places.  I first saw this flower on the cover of the Stampin' Up! Stampin' Success demonstrator magazine and loved it! The card design is from the Paper Players sketch challenge...so glad these are out here because it's nice to have a design so I don't have to come up with one.  The flower is from my garden.  Late in August I finally got some beautiful flowers from one of my dahlia plants that I thought was going to die earlier in the summer.  When it finally bloomed I took some pictures in hopes of recreating one of them. Definitely not the same as the real flower, but I love how it turned out!  Just wish the picture turned out better. :(

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
