Twist of Faith #33 - Birthday Card

This week at Twist of Faith our challenge is:


BIRTHDAYS!

Your creation should also include a scripture,
uplifting verse or positive words/quote

Our sponsor, Beccy's Place, is offering our randomly drawn prize winner their choice of three images from the Beccy's Place collection!
 
I used one of Beccy's images called Daffodils in a Teapot. My yard is full of many varieties of daffodils blooming right now, scattered about in different places. When I was deciding what colors to use, I was looking outside my kitchen window and saw the bright pink and blue hyacinths and couldn't resist using the same palette. I also used a sketch from Viva La Verve for April, Week 2:
 
 
 
 
I used a sentiment from Close To My Heart on the outside and two sentiments from Our Daily Bread Designs "Happy Birthday" set that I like to use on the inside:
 
 
I made the two buttons a little different this time. I chose two that had a recessed center area. I took two tiny yellow flower embellishments form Close To My Heart and adhered them over the holes. 
 
Thank you for visiting. Please consider joining our Birthday Challenge this week. I'd love to see what you create!
