Wishing You God's Richest Blessings

Hi, my bloggy friends! The card I'm sharing today is filled with blessings for that special day in some one's life!  All the supplies I used are from Classy Cards 'N Such.  I've really enjoyed being their Guest Designer, and I highly recommend this lovely store.  And don't can SAVE 10% OFF all your orders using Coupon Code KAREN-10.
There's just something SO soft and sweet about the gorgeous colors of the patterned papers found in the Simple Stories-Vintage Bliss 6x6 paper pad.  I used three different patterns from this lovely collection along with a sticker tab (bottom left) from that same line.   I machine stitched my papers in a matching pink colored thread. For another soft touch, I lightly brushed the edges of my card in white acrylic paint.  The next step was to adhere a small piece from the beautiful Frilly Flourish Swirls - White Pearl.  I placed that in the upper right-hand corner. 

I used a two-part sentiment from the Rubz Birthday - Inspirational by My Sentiments Exactly!.  One part of the saying is rubbed onto a journaling block cut with the lovely Spellbinders Labels Eighteen die, which I double matted. The smaller portion of the Happy Birthday sentiment is rubbed onto a small sticker. 

Down in the lower left-hand corner, I added a bow made using the Seam Binding - Chalk White and topped that with a few of the lovely Zva Creative paper roses in both Pretty Pink and Soft Blue Transition. 

I adhered my paper roses to the card using the AMAZING Scor-Tape. That stuff is truly awesome, and holds things SO well.  If you don't own any, I HIGHLY suggest this item to everyone.  It's just one of the MUST HAVE items, and is truly SO helpful.

All these great Classy Cards 'n Such products came together beautifully to create this simple little card.  I just think the store is CHOCK FULL of gorgeous things to help make your card making and creating SO easy.  Thanks for stopping by today to take a peek.  I hope that you will have a BUNCH of fun browsing through our amazing store.
