Happy Birthday Flourish Card

The Happy Birthday Flourish card made today was inspired by the color challenge at The Play Date Cafe and this weeks Freshly Made Sketch.  The Happy Birthday Flourish stamp by Inkadinkado fit perfectly in the shape cut by my Cricut machine.  I love it when my crafty ideas actually work out.
