Melinda Hugging Heart Card

I've combined 3 challenges with this card. The challenge at Stamp Something is 'Birthday Somethings', to make a project on the theme of birthdays. I followed the fantastic sketch from the Friday Sketchers blog challenge 35. Last, but not least, the challenge at Secret Crafter Saturday 15 is a project with hearts.
I used the Whiff of Joy Melinda hugging heart stamp coloured with pro-markers. Brown bazzill cardstock. Papers are 7gypsies and other from stash. Martha Stewart lace punch used on centre strip. 'Happy Birthday' sentiment stamped with majestic blue versafine. Prima flowers and Dovecraft brads. Swirls are silver foil ones got free from mag, painted the white side in sepia, then added glaze. This was a real fun sketch to follow, and one i will use again.
