A 'Happy Birthday' to a friend!

Hey y'all!
Happy Sunday!

I'm swinging on in today with a birthday card for a sweet friend of mine...

Happy Birthday, Monika!! :)
Monika, I hope your day is filled with smiles and lots of cake! Enjoy!
(Your birthday gift is already on the way to you, so you'll be able to enjoy it soon. Though for now, you'll just have to look at the card on here. ;))

Monika loved my tulips from one of my other cards I shared, so tulips she got! ;) And I know she loves the color purple tulips it is! 

I honestly just was having fun making this card. I used Neat & Tangled's Ornate Frames die with black cardstock, which I layered three times. After, I did some coloring using Waffle Flowers Welcome Spring stamp set and then used the matching dies afterwards. Once done, I finished off everything with Waffle Flowers Celebrate word die and Waffle Flowers Congrats stamp set. 

Also, if you haven't already heard or seen about it, Monika has a fun challenge blog you can play at!! Creative with Stamps has their first challenge started but there's still plenty of time to play along! So, I'm gonna add this card to the linky as well. *Note: I did 'space' that the challenge was butterfly...who would have thought I'd put a little butterfly on my card?! lol Glad I did! ;) 

Well, that's all for me today! 
Thanks so much for stopping by!
See y'all soon!
