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 with just about the entire Flourishes Crew! 

Why not leave some love on her blog HERE  and while you are hopping around, pay a visit to the Flourishes team members who are honoring her special day!

I've used the Primrose image from A Year In Flowers 1 which is the February flower.  It's stamped on Flourishes Classic White card stock and colored with Copic markers.  I wanted to color the flowers a rich regal purple and I found shades of it in the Six by Six pad by MME called A Beautiful Life.

I used a Spellbinders Blossom die behind the image and the pretty border is from the Parisian Accents set. I used a Candi dot that I colored with a Copic to coordinate. I stamped a sentiment from Tiny Flowers and Tags and cut it out with a Tailor Made Classic Tags die.


In honor of Jan’s special day, the worker bees behind the scenes decided to have a COLORFUL sale to help celebrate! TODAY and TOMORROW only – all Copic Markers will be on sale 15% off. Just use the code COPIC15 in the coupon code box at the time of check out to get this fun discount! So, join us in singing her a special little birthday song! Be sure to check out all the fun and festive wishes and grab some great ideas for birthday cards along the way!
