It's your Birthday

I hope everyone is well, we are having the strangest weather this year.  It has rained on and off all summer and the temperatures have stayed fairly cool for us.

Today's design I used the shadow technique to create the lettering and behind the flowers.

Heartfelt Creations - Small Camelia Carnation
Martha Stewart - Punch Around the Edge Pansy
Memory Box - Sentimental Happy Birthday
Poppy Stamps - Swirly Curl Border Outline, Bountiful Sunflower Background

Just a few pictures from our trip to Butchart Gardens, Canada.
