Happy Half Birthday!

Yes, in our family we celebrate a few half-birthdays...the ones that fall too close to Christmas. We feel that the kids get kind of robbed of their fun day when we simply celebrate their birthdays along with other holiday gatherings.
This card is for my granddaughter Lilly who was born on Christmas day! Her half-year birthday was June 25 but we are celebrating it this Saturday when we get together for our monthly Family Night.

Since Lilly is such an "outdoorsy" girl and loves bugs, frogs, flowers, etc. I thought she might enjoy this bright summery card.  The big blue flower is heat embossed. To make this card I used
Spellbinders die: "Make a Wish"
Poppystamps die: "Lyndon Butterfly"
Close to My Heart stamps: "Treasures"
Stampin' Up stamps: stem & leaf
Memento Ink: "Bamboo Leaves" & "New Sprout"
Stamp-N-Stuff embossing powder: "Vivid Blue"
Card stock, vellum, rhinestones and cord are from my stash
The tag sentiment was computer generated

Challenges being entered:
http://craftycardmakers.blogspot.com - #192 Tic Tac Toe (summer, stamp, embossing)

Thanks for stopping by again! Happy 4th of July!!
