Happy Birthday Anne Marie


Today is my sweet friend Anne Marie Hile of Stampin' Anne Birthday and we are having a Surprise linky BIRTHDAY party over at Dynamic Duos for her!!!!
 Anne Marie is a sweetheart in every way, so kind, so caring and so supportive. I love how spunky she is and her sense of humor. I can not say enough about how much I love her, she is an animal lover and advocate not to mention a card maker extraordinaire.

I knew right away that I wanted to make her a pink, girly card, this is what I came up with:


I made her a bouquet of pink roses. The DSP is from the retired Stampin Up Fan Fair pack, and I used that for the colors on my card. The base is Crumb cake and then the next layer is Soft Suede and then the two pieces of DSP.
I then added a strip of Soft Suede that I embossed with the new Stylish Lines EF. 
Then I added a paper doily and a very vanilla die cut circle for the base that I made my flower arrangement on.
The sentiment is from the Simply Sketched stamp set. I added some pretty silver ribbon throughout the arrangement  along with some greenery and fern branches made with punches. The center of the roses all got a basic pearl and I added pearls to the corner of the card for the finishing touch.



I hope Anne Marie has a fabulous birthday! 
Now head on over to the Dynamic Duos Blog and join the party!

Thanks for stopping by today!
