You thought I was done ha ha!

Okay, I wasn't really happy with the Birthday card that I made for GinaK originally. I liked the card but maybe not for Gina right now, maybe not a happy enough card. You know how you like something but it just doesn't feel quite right, that was the way I felt about the original card. So I decided to make another.
I of course had to use the A Year of Flowers because that is my favorite GinaK set. I popped the main image up on foam squares. I used my Marvy scalloped oval punch for the brown oval and cut two additional out of rose floral dp and sponged the edges and off set them on either side of the brown oval.
I cut my sentiment strips and punched the ends with my tag punch. Thanks for that idea Theresa! I then tied a pink dotted swiss sheer ribbon at an angle between the main image and sentiment. I tied the bow on with another piece of the same ribbon and I had one bow and two ribbon ends. I kind of like the way my ribbon turned out. I have issues with bows, but that is another post :).
I am going to get this card in the mail to Gina tomorrow so it will be there on Saturday since her Birthday is Sunday.
Let me know if you think this is a better choice. Opinions always welcome!

Now I am done for the night and I am going to bed.

Cathy, I love them both, but I agree this one is perfect for Gina. Gorgeous coloring as usual! Love the layout and all the details.

How beautiful! She will love it!!

And, thank you so much for the wonderful blog badge you sent me awhile back. You are so thoughtful - life has just been insanely crazy lately so I haven't had time to add it and do the links yet. But, thank you so much for thinking of me, my friend!
