Birthday Card

A friend of mine from work asked me to make him a card that he could give to his sweetheart for her birthday.  He said that she loves homemade gifts and is a gardener.  So, I sat down and this is what I created for her.

I have used a number of cartridges for this card....let's see if I can remember them all:

Everyday Paper Dolls:
Girl, Spade

Pooh and Friends:
Fence, Clouds

Create a Critter:
Carrots, Flowers on the Wheelbarrow

Straight from the Nest:

Walk in my Garden:
Wheelbarrow, Flowering Can, all Flowers, Caterpiller

Baby Steps:
Flower on girls overalls

George and Basic Shapes:

The Butterflies are created using a Martha Stewart Stamp and Punch.

The inside of the card has Gnome from Freshly Picked and a simple, "Happy Birthday" for a sentiment.

This card took approximately five hours from start to finish but much of that time was spent finding the perfect cartridges and then trying to size everything without the use of my gypsy.  My puppy chewed the power cord and I still haven't replaced it.....
