A Little Birthday Wish

Happy Friday,
I had some free time last night, so I thought I'd play along over at Seize the Birthday Challenge. 
They have a beautiful ocean color combo that I couldn't resist:
                                                            (Blue, Green and or Aqua)
                                                       Neutrals are always welcome too!
I couldn't resist CASE'ing this gorgeous card from the talented Barbara Anders.  This is my favorite flower stamp (I can see why it's constantly out of stock!).  I'm planning to make a bunch of cards with this stamp set, insert them in clear greeting card boxes and give them out to my friends for Christmas. 
Thanks for popping in today,
